This work investigates the performance of the on-demand machine learning (ODML) algorithm introduced in Leal et al. (2020) when applied to different reactive transport problems in heterogeneous porous media. ODML was devised to accelerate the computationally expensive geochemical reaction calculations in reactive transport simulations. We demonstrate that the ODML algorithm speeds up these calculations by one to three orders of magnitude. Such acceleration, in turn, significantly accelerates the entire reactive transport simulation. The numerical experiments are performed by implementing the coupling of two open-source software packages: Reaktoro (Leal, 2015) and Firedrake (Rathgeber et al., 2016).
