The aim of this work was to evaluate different operational modes in an anoxic biotrickling filter (BTF) by means of a dynamic model. The model was calibrated and validated satisfactorily with experimental data from a pilot-scale anoxic biotrickling filter plant for biogas sweetening. Model simulations allowed to find the optimal mode operation and predicting the biotrickling filter behavior.
