Abstract: A mathematical framework was developed for the evaluation of a recycle dialysis membrane reactor (RDMR). The lipase-catalyzed hydrolysis of olive oil in an AOT-iso-octane reversed micellar system was employed as a model. Three specific operational strategies have been considered, namely batch, fedbatch, and fed-batch-bleed. Simulation shows the conversion of substrate to be strongly dependent on efficient use of the substrate, since the permeability coefficients of both substrate and product are quite similar…
