Evaluation of grades

The grade of the module examination is also the module grade.


Contents

The lecture is divided into different blocks in which the following points are discussed in detail:
  • Bioreactors (selection, power input, mass transfer and balancing)
  • Measurement and control in bioprocesses
  • Up-scaling of bioprocesses (parallelization, optimization by stochastic methods, key figures in bioprocesses, scale transfer rules)
  • Up-stream processing (raw material supply, storage and preparation, SIP, CIP)
  • Materials and machine elements for bioreactors
  • Integrated processes and process development with economic feasibility studies
  • Introduction to modeling and simulation of bioprocesses

By means of concrete process examples, the fields of application of bioprocess engineering are finally illustrated (e.g. production of citric acid, antibiotics).

Competencies / intended learning achievements

The students are able to
  • to name the basic characteristics of a bioreactor
  • select a suitable bioreactor for a process
  • to calculate the economic efficiency of a bioreactor
  • to transfer theoretical knowledge into industrial practice
