A comprehensive simulation program of bubbling fluidized beds (CSFB or CSFMB) has been able to reproduce operations of circulating fluidized beds. The main considerations that allow such application as well comparisons between simulation results and real operational data are shown. In addition, criteria for scaling-up pilot operations to industrial units are illustrated.
