Method The theoretical CO2 fixation was calculated as (Delta G° for oxidation)/(Delta G° for CO2 fixation) = (Delta G° for oxidation)/ 113 = mol CO2 fixed (mol substrate oxidized for energy)– 1. The observed CO2 fixation was calculated from growth yields in the chemostat as mol CO2 fixed (mol substrate oxidized for energy)–1
