The LIFE Multi-AD consortium publishes the article “A Practical Approach for Biochemical Modelling in the CFD Evaluation of Novel Anaerobic Digester Concepts for Biogas Production” in the scientific journal Process (MDPI).
The article proposes a CFD modelling approach for anaerobic digestion of wastewater, including heat transfer and multiphase flow. The proposed multiphase model was verified using benchmark data and, together with the biochemical modelling approach, was applied to a multi-stage anaerobic reactor. The results showed a qualitative improvement in the prediction of methane production when the particle diameter was reduced.
