This paper is dedicated to the study on external and internal mass transfers of glucose for succinic fermentation under substrate and product inhibitions using a bioreactor with a stationary basket bed of immobilized Actinobacillus succinogenes cells. By means of the substrate mass balance for a single particle of biocatalysts, considering the Jerusalimsky kinetic model including both inhibitory effects, specific mathematical expressions have been developed for describing the profiles of the substrate concentrations and mass flows in the outer and inner regions of biocatalyst particles, as well as for estimating the influence of internal diffusion on glucose consumption rate. The results indicated that very low values of internal mass flow could be reached in the particles center. The corresponding region was considered biologically inactive, with its extent varying from 0.24% to 44% from the overall volume of each biocatalyst. By immobilization of bacterial cells and use of a basket bed, the rate of glucose consumption is reduced up to 200 times compared with the succinic fermentation system containing free cells.
