The 15th International Bioenergy Congress (15 Congreso Internacional de Bioenergía) was held 5-6th October in Valladolid (Spain). It was organized by AVEBIOM, the Spanish Association of Biomass, and AEBIG, the Spanish Association of Biogas. 583 participants had the chance to attend more than sixty oral and poster presentations addressing the challenges and opportunities of bioenergy, and the research and innovation advances on this technology. This Congress was scheduled to coincide with the II Renewable Gas Trade Fair (II Salón del Gas Renovable), where more than 2000 professionals visited more than 100 stands from 12 different countries.
ITAINNOVA presented the work developed within the LIFE Multi-AD 4AgroSMEs project in the Congress. The poster Digital Twin for Design and Upscaling of Anaerobic Reactor summarized the project challenges and explained how Digital Twin technology supported the reactor redesign process required for its industrialization. This contribution was focused on the computational fluid dynamic models and the methodology developed by ITAINNOVA during the project.
