Scale change preparation for well-stirred enzymes

In partnership with Clermont-Auvergne University, IFPEN has developed a tool for predicting and scaling-up the performance of aerated bioreactors used in bio-based fuel production. This tool, based on numerical fluid mechanics, combines hydrodynamics, rheology, matter transfer and simplified microorganism metabolism.
