Summary

This chapter discusses the characteristics of different succinic acid producers, their research history and current status in the field. It talks about the strategies for developing high-performance strains with respect to succinic acid titer, yield, and productivity in detail. The chapter describes the efforts on the exploitation of various raw materials, and the optimization of the fermentation processes for several succinic acid producers. In addition, it also describes the procedures and development of the downstream processes and the efficient separation and purification of bio-based succinic acid. Finally, future perspectives and directions on the development of the bio-based succinic acid process are suggested in the view of integrated process development.
