Global Optimization of Continuous Fermentation Involving Zymomonas mobilis
Abstract: Global steady-state optimization of Zymomonas mobilis fermentation process problems is performed to demonstrate the existence of multiple optimum solutions necessitating the use of a global optimization strategy. It is shown that the steady-state equations for the Zymomonas mobilis fermentation process can be reduced to a single equation which when used as a constraint results in yielding only one optimum solution, the global one.
