Generic anaerobic digestion model for the simulation of various reactor types and substrates

Generic anaerobic digestion model for the simulation of various reactor types and substrates

Transactions of the ASAE 36(2): 537-544

A mathematical model was developed to represent a wide variety of anaerobic reactor types and substrates. The model is a generic, anaerobic digestion process model, using lumped substrate parameters, and was developed for use as type-specific reactor model operating within the sphere of a larger system model. Three types of anaerobic reactors were simulated: fixed-bed reactors, conventional stirred tank reactors, and continuously expanding reactors. The generic anaerobic digestion model provided a tool for testing various values of conversion efficiency and kinetic parameters for a wide range of substrate types and reactor designs.
