A Problem of Physical/Chemical Synthesis of Food Products on Planetary Bases 961410

Development of closed life support systems for water recovery, oxygen generation and food processing is achievable in the future.
However, currently the possibility of partial reproduction of food components from metabolic products and biocomplex waste should be taken into account when advanced life support system development is under consideration. Studies on carbohydrate synthesis from products of life are of particular interest because carbohydrates hold the first place in terms of mass in the food.
The paper discusses possible ways of carbohydrate synthesis by physical/chemical means. Separate stages of a carbohydrate synthesis process are considered.
