Abstract A mathematical model is presented which predicts the temperature profiles for solid state fermentation in a packed bed in two dimensions, radial and axial. Heat transfer within the bed occurs by conduction through the solid material and convection by the air used for aeration. The temperature at the wall of the reactor is fixed at 298 K. Simulations with the model indicate that the air velocity and air temperature will significantly influence the temperature and biomass concentration profiles. The effect of the bioreactor geometry is also discussed. This fundamental model of solid state fermentation can be used to predict the effects of a range of parameters and can be used a a tool to aid scale-up to large bioreactors.
