Dynamic modeling of an immobilized cell reactor
A mathematical model has been developed to describe the dynamic aerobic reaction occurring in a semibatch type of mixed flow reactor, containing cells immobilized in gel beads. This modeling is an extension of that developed in our previous study, for an immobilized cell reactor involving ethanol fermentation. In contrast to anaerobic reactions such as ethanol fermentation, (wherein the influent substrate concentration can be set at any desired level), aeration becomes necessary to provide additional substrate (oxygen) for most aerobic reactions occurring in immobilized cell reactors. Tobacco cell cultivation was chosen as a representative aerobic reaction, and the effect of aeration was assessed in terms of the volumetric coefficient of oxygen from gas to liquid phases.
