Chapter 12. Modelling for Bio-,Agro- and Pharma-Applications*
This chapter considers a range of modelling applications drawn from biological, agrochemical and pharma fields.
Microcapsule controlled release of an active ingredient is considered through a time dependent model. Burst-time and lag-time effects are considered and the model adopts a multiscale approach for meso and microscale partial models. The specific case study of codeine release is examined.
As a bio- application, a batch fermentation process is modelled. This involves the generation of a pre-cursor compound for insulin production.The plant involves a number of coupled unit operations such as mixers, fermenter as well as air compression and filtration.
