Module content:
Fundamentals of reactors and reactions in bioprocess, environmental and process technology:
Introduction and basic terminology; Reactor classes (power generation / material conversion); Reaction kinetics; Reaction order; Elementary, isochoric, irreversible, homogeneous reactions; Elementary, isochoric, reversible, homogeneous reactions; Reactions involving catalysts; Reactor types; Residence time distributions in reactors; Pulse function and frequency function; Step function and transfer function; Ideal reactors; Real reactors; Conversion integral
 
Physical aspects of process engineering in bioprocess, environmental and process technologies:
Material and energy balance schemes; Ternary miscibility diagrams; Absorption and exsorption; Adsorption and desorption; Extraction from fluids; Pervaporation; Dialysis; Reverse osmosis; Flocculation; Precipitation; Flotation
 
Current aspects of bioprocess, environmental and process technologies:
This part of the course aims to introduce students to new developments and key topics from the fields of industrial microbiology, bioprocess technology, environmental technology, environmental process engineering and related areas. To supplement information provided in the lectures, students will work independently to prepare a presentation on a specialist topic, with information being sourced from current international publications. The results will be presented and discussed in the group. This part of the course also provides students with an opportunity to hear talks and lectures from professionals working in industry and applied research. In addition, there will be discussion of broader, more interdisciplinary aspects such as economic feasibility, ethical issues and global relevance.  Finally, the course offers an opportunity to visit selected production facilities.
