This project will develop and validate mathematical models of complex multi-component reaction kinetics to select the optimal reactor modes for the scalable use of carboligases. The researcher will go through the process of producing the enzyme, setting kinetic parameters, developing new reaction models and validating them and choose the most fitting operation mode for the reactor based on the experimental data as well as model simulations retrieved during the research. This workflow will lead to the optimal reaction conditions and reactor setup to obtain maximum process metrics for the studied systems.
