In parallel with the development of biotechnology, the production of organic and biochemical substances by fermentation process is one of the most current issue of our age's technology Many chemical substances widely used in various industrial fields, such as organic solvents, antibiotics and enzymes that are produced by microorganisms in fermentation processes. Many common organic acids such as citric acid, lactic acid, fumaric acid, malic acid and salicylic acid used in food, pharmaceutical, chemical, textile, plastics, cosmetics and paper industries can be produced by fermentation.
