Isolation and Characterization of Novel Clostridial Species

Abstract
A novel clostridia bacterial species (Clostridium ragsdalei, ATCC BAA-622, "P11") is provided. P11 is capable of synthesizing, from waste gases, products which are useful as biofuel. In particular, P11 can convert CO to ethanol. Thus, this novel bacterium transforms waste gases (e.g. syngas and refinery wastes) into useful products. P11 also catalyzes the production of acetate.
