ROSA, M.A.; PINEDA, H.E.; TOSELLI, L.A. y BONATERRA, F.R.. Selection by Simulation of a Model for the Kinetic Structure of an Aerobic Degradation System for Effluents from a Milk Industry. Inf. tecnol. [online]. 2004, vol.15, n.2, pp.75-78. ISSN 0718-0764. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-07642004000200013.
This work consisted in implementing a methodology for the selection of kinetic model structures for a real case of aerobic degradation of industrial effluents from a regional milk industry using simulation as a tool. This tool is available in a specific commercial software and consists of making configurations for one or several substrates with a set of structural models of increasing complexity and independent degradation velocities. The behavior of the system is evaluated using various combinations of the preceding considerations and comparing the simulated results with industrial experimental data. The results obtained using a relatively simple structure were satisfactory for industrial application. The most important contribution was the proof that both the proposed methodology and the power of the software could be applied to real situations, which is of especial importance for the analysis and design of treatment plants
