UK Biogas & AD Operators Course in June 2013

25 June - 28 June 2013

The UK biogas and anaerobic digestion training course is especially relevant for biogas plant operators with the main focus on optimising digester biology and operating parameters. The course is also suitable for those wishing to acquire a deeper knowledge of the biological process in AD. Programme and registration!

We are repeating our highly successful in-depth biogas and anaerobic digestion training course with a half-day study tour in the UK. The 4-day training course is to enhance your knowledge on anaerobic digestion and the sustainability of biogas plants.

In partnership with REA Biogas it will be delivered by German engineers from IBBK with many years of practical experience dealing with all sorts of AD plant with a wide range of feedstocks. The engineers delivering the course content are specialists in understanding and optimising the complex biology, feedstock selection and operating parameters of AD plants - their teaching is the highlight of our AD training courses in the UK since 2011.
