Biological Engineering-applications

The use of an electric field or an electric potential to improve the performance of the processes has been applied through several techniques such as ultrafiltration and electrosorption. The electric field has also been used to increase the output capacity of the olive oil and fruits juice extraction. The use of an electric field has not been studied yet in an enzymatic process. Recently, a new analysis technique using a field-effect bio-detector based on the application of a gating voltage to immobilized enzymes on the working electrode of the detector was presented. Also, it was reported that the enzyme biospecificity was preserved in the presence of the applied field. The main purpose of this work was the determination of the ability of the electric potential to increase the enzymatic process efficiency. The effect of the electric field on the enzymatic reactor efficiency was studied using the Trichoderma reesei enzyme and olive mill substrate as a biocatalytic system. This work was aimed to be achieved by adopting optimal conditions obtained from a previously batch mode experiment, i.e. pH 5, T=50°C and Enzyme to Substrate ratio of 0.1 g enzymes/g olive mill.
