Abstract: We propose a mathematical model for phenol and p-cresol mixture degradation in a continuously stirred bioreactor. The model is described by three nonlinear ordinary differential equations. The novel idea in the model design is the biomass specific growth rate, known as sum kinetics with interaction parameters (SKIP) and involving inhibition effects. We determine the equilibrium points of the model and study their local asymptotic stability and bifurcations with respect to a practically important parameter. Existence and uniqueness of positive solutions are proved. Global stabilizability of the model dynamics towards equilibrium points is established. The dynamic behavior of the solutions is demonstrated on some numerical examples.
