A model for cometabolism is verified experimentally for a defined methanotrophic mixed culture. The model includes the effects of cell growth, endogenous cell decay, product toxicity, and competitive inhibition with the assumption that cometabolic transformation rates are enhanced by reducing power obtained from oxidation of growth substrates. A theoretical transformation yield is used to quantify the enhancement resulting from growth substrate oxidation. A systematic method for evaluating… CONTINUE READING
