Advanced Fermentation Concepts

This workshop is designed as an advanced course to deepen participants understanding across a broad range of fermentation principles, especially related to industrial fermentations such as enzymes, biochemicals and probiotics. It is targeted to those with an established foundation in fermentation concepts.

The instructors have extensive practical industrial experience in process development and scale-up. As such, the intent will favor practical applications with specific examples versus a concentrated theoretical approach.

The workshop will build upon the basic concepts of fermentation and provide in depth examples of how the application of these concepts impact fermentation. Overlapping methods that provide orthogonal verification of fermentation data will be emphasized across topics. The power of off-gas data to make process decisions will be stressed. Mixing, gas transfer and more complex temperature control predictions will be covered. Successful scale-up is one of the largest challenges of industrial fermentation and will be addressed with governing principles and real-world examples. Scale-down, taking processes back to the lab, can be equally challenging. It too will be addressed.

Who Should Attend?

For attendees who have an established foundation with fermentation concepts, a one-day workshop is being offered that delves into topics that are generally considered to be at the advanced end of the fermentation knowledge spectrum.
