The fermentation of gaseous substrates such as CO, H(2), and CO(2) may be performed in a continuous stirred tank reactor, as well as the traditional batch reactor. In this article, the conversion of carbon monoxide by Peptostreptococcus productus is demonstrated in a stirred tank reactor under both mass transfer-controlled and nonmass transfer-controlled conditions. Utilizing a non-steady-state procedure, intrinsic rates are evaluated under non-mass transfer-controlled conditions in a time… CONTINUE READING
