Introduction

This book is about the design and operation of bioreactors for SSF. The current chapter briefly introduces the various bioreactor types, which will be described in more detail in Chaps. 6 to 11. Chapter 4 considers the heat and mass transfer phenomena that occur within bioreactors in a qualitative manner, while Chap. 5 shows how these heat and mass transfer phenomena are intimately linked to the question of how to design a large-scale SSF bioreactor; this discussion will highlight the need for mathematical models as tools in the scale-up process (Fig. 3.1).

What does a bioreactor need to do? (Chap. 3)
