ABSTRACT
A rigorous description of the features of the growth of microorganisms in biochemical processes wasderived by general population balance modelling. It is assumed that only one property is needed todescribed the state of a cell the mass m. These cells have various ages masses and so on, whichneed to be taken into account. This paper illustrates a complex situation where growth as well as birthand death processes must be account for. The obtained results have shown rigorous microbial populationmodel and microbial broth state transition.
