    Abstract
    Yield and cost are two major factors limiting the widespread use of rhamnolipids. In the present study, waste frying oil was used as the sole carbon source to produce environmentally friendly RLs by Pseudomonas aeruginosa NY3. The Plackett-Burman design and Box-Behnken design methods were used to maximize the production yield of RL. The PBD results showed that the concentrations of NaNO 3 , Na 2 HPO 4 , and trace elements were the key factors affecting the yield of RL. Furthermore, the BBD results showed that at NaNO 3 , Na 2 HPO 4 , and trace elements concentrations were 4.95...
