This work presents a critical analysis for three models group of methanogen potential prediction. The first group allows determination of the methane productivity of substrates, through three models (BMPthCOD, BMPthAtC and BMPthOFC). The BMPthCOD is suitable for a first approximation calculation. BMPthAtC and BMPthOFC are more accurate; however, require a complex characterization of substrates. The second models group predicts the cumulative methane production using seven models. The analysis

The third group of models is particularly involved in the determination of daily flow of methane by a biodigester. The Hashimoto model, which uses the operating parameters, has been identified as the most suitable.
