Fermentation is a central unit operation in food, pharmaceutical and biofuels processes. In recent years, large research efforts have been made to develop biological processes to produce ethanol and platform chemicals from sugars, especially from lignocellulosic materials.
On the other hand, genome-scale models for micro-organisms are continuously being developed and used in the development of new strains.
Combining these models to process engineering applications can be seen as a great opportunity for design and optimization of fermentation processes.
