TL;DR: In this paper , the authors considered the model of two chemostats in series when a biomass mortality is considered in each vessel and compared the performance of the serial configuration with a single chemostat with the same total volume.

TL;DR: In this article , a model of two interconnected chemostats in series, characterized by biomass mortality, is discussed, and a comparison is established with a single chemostat of the same total volume in two different cases, that are with or without mortality rate.
Abstract: This paper discusses a model of two interconnected chemostats in series, characterized by biomass mortality. A comparison is established with a single chemostat of the same total volume in two different cases, that are with or without mortality rate. The outlet substrate concentration and the biogas flow rate are the main criteria for comparison. According to conditions depending on the operating parameters and the distribution of the total volume, our results show which structure, the series of the two chemostats or the single chemostat, performs better in terms of minimizing the outlet substrate concentration or maximizing the biogas flow rate, and this with or without account of mortality. Moreover, the differences and similarities in the results corresponding to the case with mortality and the one without mortality, are highlighted.

TL;DR: In this paper , the authors considered the production of biomass of two interconnected chemostats in series with biomass mortality and a growth kinetic of the biomass described by an increasing function, and compared the productivity of a single chemostat with the same mortality rate and with volume equal to the sum of the volumes of the two Chemostats.
Abstract: This paper considers the production of biomass of two interconnected chemostats in series with biomass mortality and a growth kinetic of the biomass described by an increasing function. A comparison is made with the productivity of a single chemostat with the same mortality rate and with volume equal to the sum of the volumes of the two chemostats. We determine the operating conditions under which the productivity of the serial configuration is greater than the productivity of the single chemostat. Moreover, the differences and similarities in the results corresponding to the case with mortality and the one without mortality, are highlighted. The mortality leads to surprising results where the productivity of a steady state where the bacteria are washed out in the first chemostat is greater than the one where the bacteria are present in both chemostats.
