An interface to ADM1 was developed to estimate the solid waste composition from its practical characteristics. The interface was based on COD, elemental, charge and covalent bond balances to conceal any error in collected characteristics from different sources. The interface was validated by reported characteristics of manure and food wastes and determined with relevant accuracy the wastes' composition of carbohydrates, proteins and lipids. The benefit from the interface application with ADM1 is illustrated through virtual case studies of co-digestion and comparison of existing high solids digester designs for given solid waste characteristics. Thus the developed interface serves as a tool for early and efficient decision on technology selection of high solids digestion.
