In this section we don't want to describe aerobic bioreactors mathematically. We will only discuss the situations mentioned in Section 7.3 by using mass balances at one point inside the reactor. Further conditions are:
• The concentration of bacteria inside the biofilm is locally constant.
• The substrate concentration should always be high enough and therefore has no influence on the removal rate.
• Endogenous respiration will be neglected.
