In this article, a numerical study of a one-dimensional, volume-based batch crystallization model (PBM) is presented that is used in numerous industries and chemical engineering sciences. A numerical approximation of the underlying model is discussed by using an alternative Quadrature Method of Moments (QMOM). Fines dissolution term is also incorporated in the governing equation for improvement of product quality and removal of undesirable particles. The moment-generating function is introduced

To verify the efficiency and accuracy of the proposed technique, two test problems are discussed. The numerical results obtained by the proposed scheme are plotted versus the analytical solutions. Thus, these findings line up well with the analytical findings.
