It has been demonstrated that excess substrate can cause uncoupling between anabolism and catabolism, which leads to energy spilling. However, the Luedeking-Piret equation for product formation does not account for the energy spilling-associated product formation due to substrate excess. Based on the growth yield and energy uncoupling models proposed earlier, a kinetic model describing energy spilling-associated product formation in relation to residual substrate concentration was developed for substrate-sufficient continuous culture and was further verified with literature data. The parameters in the proposed model are well defined and have their own physical meanings. From this model, the specific productivity of unit energy spilling-associated substrate consumption, and the maximum product yield coefficient, can be determined. Results show that the majority of energy spilling-associated substrate consumption was converted to carbon dioxide and less than 6% was fluxed into the metabolites, while it was found that the maximum product yield coefficients varied markedly under different nutrient limitations. The results from this research can be used to develop the optimized bioprocess for maximizing valuable product formation.
