A Mechanistic Model for Microbial Uptake of Hydrocarbons in Flocculating and Nonflocculating Systems
Date of Original Version
Hydrocarhon uptake was studied in three microbial systems with different flocculation characteristics. An integrated mechanistic model, based on different substrate sources, has been developed for both flocculating and nonfiocculating hydrocarbon fermentation systems. Simulated growth kinetics were compared with experimental results. The model illustrates the role of microbial characteristics in uptake kinetics and identifies the controlling parameters to better understand microbial uptake of hydrocarbons. © 1986, Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
