The present research aims at numerical simulation via lattice Boltzmann method (LBM) of hydrodynamics inside fixed-bed bioreactors for vinasse treatment. Inasmuch as flow pattern influences species concentration throughout the equipment, comprehensive simulation may help one understand concurrent transport phenomena for proper process design and optimization. Compared to long-standing d...
