Syngas fermentation for producing biofuels and other products suffers from mass transfer limitations due to low CO and H2 solubility in liquid medium. Therefore, it is critical to characterize mass transfer rates of these gases to guide bioreactor design and optimization. This work presents a novel technique to measure the volumetric mass transfer...

... The volumetric mass transfer coefficient, K L a, is not only useful to compare mass transfer capacity of different setups and at different operational conditions, but also to provide valuable information for the reactor design or process modeling. Different HFM bioreactor configurations for the permeation of syngas substrates under abiotic conditions have been tested at laboratory scale and the respective K L a values have been reviewed, although not all literature values can be directly compared [14,42]. Therefore, a detailed explanation is discussed here. ...
