In microbial production of food additives, successful scale-up to production volume is key for a competitive business. Suitable parameters and setpoints need to be identified and critical engineering parameters to be considered. These include vessel and impeller geometry, mass transfer rate, power numbers (Np) and impeller power consumption per volume (P/V). Simulation of computer fluid dynamics (CFD) can help predicting fluid flow conditions in the different scales.
