How Does the Mass Transfer Restriction Change the Reaction’s Kinetic Order for Acid Mine Drainage Treatment in an Anaerobic Bioreactor?
In this work was described the acid mine drainage treatment in an anaerobic bioreactor, where was evaluated the mass transfer resistance’s effects on appearance of the reaction’s kinetic order using a mathematical model, Malthus-Monod-Fick model.
