Biological process engineering

Course contents
  • - Substrate requirements and conditions for development of technologically used microorganisms and cells, models of enzyme kinetics, microorganism growth kinetics and product formation kinetics
    - Implementation of these conditions by primary tasks (homogenisation, suspension, dispersion, mass and heat transport) and secondary tasks of a bioreactor (e.g. sterilisation processes) and first scale-up views
    - Characterisation of bioreactors in terms of design, internals, measurement and control units as well as behaviour in time
