Abstract A model for cometabolism is verified experimentally for a defined methanotrophic mixed culture. The model includes the effects of cell growth, endogenous cell decay, product toxicity, and competitive inhibition with the assumption that cometabolic transformation rates are enhanced by reducing power obtained from oxidation of growth substrates. A theoretical transformation yield is used to quantify the enhancement resulting from growth substrate oxidation. A systematic method for evaluating model parameters independently is described. The applicability of the model is evaluated by comparing experimental data for methanotrophic cometabolism of TCE with model predictions from independently measured model parameters. Propagation of errors is used to quantify errors in parameter estimates and in the final prediction. The model successfully predicts TCE transformation and methane utilization for a wide range of concentrations of TCE (0.5 to 9 mg/L) and methane (0.05 to 6 mg/L). (c) 1997 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
