ProCycla MT: CSTR Module

The CSTR module allows the user to simulate the operation of a continuous anaerobic digester to predict the biogas and methane production, and the digestate properties. The virtual representation of the digester is based on the ADM1 model (Anaerobic Digestion Model No.1). The user can choose different characteristics for the fed substrate, operating conditions and digester's physical properties.
