EN In the modern era, the use of environmentally friendly and sustainable solutions for effective performance of biocatalytic conversion is of key importance due to high efficiencies of the above-mentioned reactions and mild process conditions. In this context, the use of enzymatic bioreactors (EBR) with the option for highly efficient and continuous biocatalytic conversion of substrates of the reaction for conversion of biomass components as well as for removal of hazardous pollutants from wastewaters offers numerous benefits and seems to be particularly interesting. Enzymatic membrane reactors (EMR) should also be mentioned as an attractive improvement of the classic enzymatic reactors. By using the presented solution, simultaneous conversion of substrates and separation of reaction products can be achieved, which additionally reduces the operational costs and is time effective. Although the general criteria for a bioreactor design include low shear stress, high mass transfer and efficient mixing for proper substrate-enzyme interactions, it should be clearly stated that prior selection of the most suitable reactor configuration and enzyme form as well as the type of the process is required every time in order to achieve high removal efficiency. Thus, in the framework of this chapter, we present an overview of the impact of the type of bioreactor and its configuration as well as the form of enzymatic beads on the efficiencies of the biocatalytic reactions carried out using bioreactors. Finally, future perspectives regarding the use of biocatalytic processes involving free and immobilized enzymes and their application in biocatalytic reactors for removal of environmental pollutants and biomass conversion were discussed.
