Abstract The ADM1 is applied to simulate the behaviour of an Upflow Anaerobic Sludge Blanket Reactor (UASB) treating blood powder (spray dried blood meal) wastewater. Considering a completely mixed liquid phase, the model is defined by a set of differential equations which can be numerically solved. Experimental data allows validating the output of the model which is then used for performing numerous simulations. A single reactor is compared to a series of two identical reactors of half the volume each. For the same total hydraulic retention time, the series reaches an outlet concentration 74\% inferior to that of the single reactor. Furthermore, for the same total conversion the volume required by the series is 43\% of that of the single reactor.
