By S. R. Weijers (auth.), Spiros N. Agathos, Walter Reineke (eds.)

At the sunrise of the twenty first century, biotechnology is rising as a key allowing expertise for sustainable environmental safety and stewardship. Biotechnology for the surroundings: Wastewater remedy and Modeling, Waste fuel Handling illustrates the present technological purposes of microorganisms in wastewater remedy and within the keep watch over of waste gasoline emissions. within the first portion of the ebook exact emphasis is put on using rigorous mathematical and conceptual types for an in-depth realizing of the advanced biology and engineering points underlying the operation of contemporary wastewater remedy installations. the second one half addresses waste gasoline biofiltration, an increasing biotechnological program of microbial metabolism for air caliber coverage via procedures starting from the abatement of detrimental unstable pollution to the removal of nuisance odors. it will likely be a useful reference resource for environmental scientists, engineers and choice makers excited about the advance, assessment or implementation of organic remedy structures.

Example text

Firstly, it is not indicated in a general sense in which cases the dynamics of a component can be neglected, that is, which component i can be assumed fast, and when and why ~i can be assumed zero. The general rule is motivated with two specifIc situations only, which are briefly discussed below, namely 1. neglect of product dynamics for volatile products with low solubility, and 2. neglect of substrate dynamics in a model with biomass and substrate. These examples do however not cover nor explain all possible situations where multiple timescales allow reduction.

4 Case 4: S and X comparable, r* moderate, Mo =1 In the subsequent cases, only the relevant steps of the respective procedures will be discussed. In Case 4, both the timescales estimated by the eigenvalues and the estimated timescales according to Procedure 2 indicate that the timescales are relatively close and no timescale multiplicity occurs (Tables 7 and 8). This was also confIrmed in simulation. Thus, the conjecture that timescale multiplicity is associated with large concentration differences is confirmed.

An error estimate is also provided through step 4. 3. 3) is applied. This procedure proceeds via scaling and selection of a perturbation parameter. For a complete scaling procedure, analytic timescale estimates are required for scaling the fast and slow timescale and analytic error estimates are derived. 2. 1. Model system definitions and analysis A simple chemostat with one biomass and one substrate will be used to test the proposed procedure. In this subsection, the system is described, some analytical relationships are presented and the cases that are discussed in the next subsections are indicated.
