Hydrodynamics has a strong influence on substrate elimination capacity in trickle-bed bioreactors (TBB). The present study reports the influence of liquid mass flow rate and bed void fraction on the TBB liquid residence time distribution (RTD), gas-liquid pressure drop, liquid hold-up, and biofilm wetting efficiency. Most RTD are well represented by a… CONTINUE READING
