The advantages of the batch reactor lie with its versatility.
Where mixing is a critical parameter, the batch reactor is not the ideal solution.
Products within batch reactors usually liberate or absorb heat during processing.
For processes with very high heat loads, there are better solutions than batch reactors.
There can be severe odour issues if a batch reactor is opened and emptied before the process is well completed.
Using more than one batch reactor at a plant can ensure constant production of biogas.
There is a large installed base of batch reactors within industry and their method of use is well established.
This is essentially a batch reactor used in a continuous flow.
The ideal completely mixed batch reactor is a closed system.
