An Experimental Model of a Biological Life Support System with the Intra-system Mass Exchange Closed to a High Degree, Based on “Biological Combustion” of Dead-end Plant Residues 2003-01-2417
This work concerns the model of a biological life support system consisting of higher plants, a unit of “biological combustion”, a physicochemical reactor, and 1/30 of a human. The cycling of the main biogenic elements of the system, water, and carbon dioxide was closed to a high degree (more than 95%). Experimental-theoretical analysis of the cycling processes in the system was based on the calculations of mass exchange rates dynamics and some stoichiometric equations. The model was designed for the study of mechanisms of material transformation and the directions of mass exchange processes in the artificial ecosystems.
