Provides a thorough study of the engineering of enzyme reactors, including comprehensive mathematical modeling and optimization

Enzyme Reactor Engineering: Principles and Applications sequentially covers the three classical levels of description: macroscopic, or ideal; microscopic, or nonideal in terms of hydrodynamics (including homogeneous, nontrivial flow patterns, as well as heterogeneous systems); and submicroscopic, in terms of mixing. Major emphasis is placed on general simulation from first principles, rather than empirical correlation. This methodology rationally departs from balance equations, carefully eliminates overparameterization, and establishes dimensionless, simpler relationships; and builds on such models to find optima of relevance, while constructing rational strategies to approach common problems.

This book begins with an organized introduction to enzyme reactor engineering, followed by two major parts analysis of enzyme reaction kinetics, and analysis of enzyme reactor features. It concludes with a brief coverage of relevant mathematical concepts. A carefully paced approach, suitable even for nonspecialists, allows the reader to gain insight about the detailed kinetics of the reaction brought about by a general enzyme, and provides the complementary tools necessary to design and optimize the overall reactor behavior.

Provides thorough study of the engineering of enzyme reactors, including comprehensive mathematical modeling, and coverage of additional topics (e.g. separation, control) required for effective integration and overall understandingChapters introduce basic phenomenological principles and subsequently derive usable results, ending up with generic examples of germane applications Environmental concerns supporting white biotechnology, and a growing portfolio of available, tailored and less expensive enzymes on the market have turned enzyme reactors into a better and better performing (and recommended) technology for industrial implementation.

Enzyme Reactor Engineering is thus the ideal text to support that effort suitable for students, researchers, and practitioners working in chemical engineering, biochemistry, biological engineering, chemistry, physical chemistry, and applied physics.

F. Xavier Malcata, PhD, is Full Professor at Department of Chemical Engineering, of the University of Porto in Portugal, and Researcher at LEPABE Laboratory for Process Engineering, Environment, Biotechnology and Energy. His major areas of research encompass: theoretical simulation and optimization of enzyme reactors; optimization of thermodynamically and kinetically-controlled processes; and design and optimization of bio- and photobioreactors. He is the author of more than 400 highly cited journal papers, eleven books, four edited books, and fifty chapters in edited books. In 2011, he was awarded the Elmer Marth Educator Award by the International Association of Food Protection (USA), and in 2014, the William V. Cruess Award for excellence in teaching by the Institute of Food Technologists (USA).
