Economical Aspects of Continuous Operation with Biocatalysis
Since synthetic membranes for ultrafiltration are available in high-area-modules, continuous operation with native enzymes in membrane reactors will become an interesting alternative to continuous operation with covalently bound enzymes even on an industrial scale. Continuous operation has been studied with native and carrier-fixed acylase used for optical resolution of methionine by stereospecific hydrolysis of N-acetyl-D,L-methionine (1,2). In this report the data obtained are used to evaluate the economical aspects of different operational methods.
