I would like to know if can I simulate an anaerobic sludge reactor, an UASB using ASIM? I have read several articles about the ADM1 Anaerobic Digestion Model N.1, but the most of them refer about 19 processes and 24 components, which complicates the simulations. I would like to know If you have done or known about this kind of simulations using ASIM. I would apreciate your answer, Thank you.
ADM1 is too complex to use in ASIM (e.g. gas stripping, complex process kinetics as well as number of parameters and processes). I would recommend to work with Aquasim or one of the profesional software packages that have already implemetnted ADM1 (SIMBA, WEST, GPSX). ASIM does not allow the modelling of biofilm dynamics (growth, mass transfer effects).
