On the basis of ten years of research activity on controlled atmosphere storage of apples, a mathematical model describing the evolution of aerobic and/or anaerobic respiration (alcoholic fermentation) rates as a function of working conditions (Temperature, PO2 and PCO2) was developed. The eqautions as well as the logical procedure followed by the model to describe aerobic and anaerobic respiration rates are reported and discussed.
