Title: Mass transfer effects and kinetics of Gaden type I fermentations using immobilized whole-cells in a CSTB
Authors: Prasad, Basheshwar Rajendra

Published in: Proceedings of Chemical Engineering Transactions
Abstract: An unstructured model for growth associated Gaden type I fermentations for continuously stirred tank bioreactor (CSTB) with immobilized whole-cells is presented. Based on the developed model equation an experimental method has been evolved for the determination of kinetic parameters and effectiveness factor. Intraparticle diffusion limitations and inactivation due to immobilization process have been incorporated using effectiveness factor concept. The method has been illustrated by ethanol fermentation using alginate entrapped Sacharomvces cerevisiae cells. The maximum productivity of the CSTB has also been determined. The model predicted Dmax values are found to be in good agreement with the experimental values. Copyright © 2009, AIDIC Servizi S.r.l.
