How Hybrid Neural Model Might Help on the Optimization of Biofuels Product

A. Saraceno, S. Curcio & V. Calabrò
The aim of this paper was showing how artificial neural networks could by applied in modeling and optimization of biofuel production processes. In bioprocesses the use of biocatalysts, like enzymes or whole cells, usually requires a detailed analysis of kinetics and mass transfer phenomena difficult to be achieved using a pure theoretical approach. Artificial neural networks (ANNs) are black­box models that may be used in bioprocess modeling both realizing pure empirical models and hybrid neural...
