Prerequisites
Not applicable

Objectives
Students should be able to research or obtain laboratory scale data on the overall kinetics of microbial processes in order to be able to: select the fermenter type and operating mode; design the reaction vessel and its mixing, aeration and cooling systems.

Program
Stoichiometry and kinetics of microbial processes. Geometries, operation modes and modelling of biological reactors: stirred tank with and without biomass recirculation, fixed bed, fluidized bed, bubble column, aerated recirculation reactor, bioreactor association. oxygen-limited fermentations. Heat transfer and sterilization. Scale-up. Case studies.

Evaluation Methodology
Final written exam (80%) and laboratory works reports (20%). Minimum mark of 10/20 in each component. This methodology applies to continuous assessment and examination.
