The objective of this work is to elucidate the viable significance and technological implications for the fermentative production of 2,3-BDO from syngas by researching the following: derivation of a novel bio-kinetic model with substrate inhibition, analyzing product formation with the use of syngas from coal, and conducting an experimental design for potential significant factors that affect product formation. A critical review and analysis of the state-of-the-art developments for gas to liquid (GTL) technologies and syngas formation from coal are provided.
