Title: SYSTEMS, METHODS, AND APPARATUS FOR INCREASING BIOREACTOR CAPACITY USING SILICA POLYMERS
Abstract:
Disclosed herein are systems and methods that provide for increased carrying capacity of bioreactors using silica polymers. Disclosed is a method that includes supplying nutrients and silica polymers containing microorganisms to a bioreactor to form a first suspension and controlling temperature, pressure, and nutrient conditions in the bioreactor to produce a second suspension with increased carrying capacity as compared to a control bioreactor containing microorganisms without the silica polymers.
