This paper presents a simulation technique of yeast cultivation and ethanol fermentation on a commercially available process simulator. In general, the simulation of microorganism cultivation on the process simulator is not possible because a material data of the microorganism is not registered in the simulator. If all of the data required is collected and installed to the simulator, the simulation of the microorganism cultivation will be achieved on it. Yeast which is a widely known...
