Look these up:  See Table 16.9 in Brock et al. (eds.), 1994, 7th Ed. 
of Biology of Microorganisms.  List of 10 fermentations.

Heere's two off top of my head:

1. Mixed acid fermentation by E. coli and other enteric bacteria 
(basis of biochemical ID)

2. Acetone Butanol Ethanol (ABE) fermentation by Clostridium 
acetobutylicum (C. butyricum)  (used in commercial scale in WWII and 
now(?) in S. Africa)

Hope this helps.

carried out by any bacterium?
