propose a bioprocess expansion train to produce Quorn in Singapore. The facility should generate sufficient protein to feed 10% of Singapore’s total population (5.7 million, with an equivalent number of males and females).
The QC lab has determined that the water content is 85% of total wet biomass. After spray drying, 30% of overall dry biomass is made up of protein.
Your report should include
(1) the geometric design of seed, pre-seed and production bioreactors (stirred tank).
(2) description of operating conditions for each bioreactor.
(3) the capital and operating cost required for the infrastructure involved (identified in the blue box).
(4) assumptions made to support engineering calculation. (5) citation of literature references.
