This  course, tailored to the specific requirements in the UK industry, benefits from IBBKs 20 years of experience up to the newest developments in AD. This course provides an insight  into new substrates and procedures for a successful future of biogas plant operations. The small groups will provide ample time to network with fellow participants and get in a lot of Q&A with the instructors. The instructors are long time experienced and their practical background provides in-depth knowledge.
The lab session is dedicated to practical digester biology, providing you with in-depth knowledge about the specific biological processes in your plant. Our instructors will explain the outset of a new or revised plant and the challenges of digesting Nitrogen-rich and fibrous feedstock. You will learn about process control and optimisation measures, covering the inhibitors and additives. Additionally an interactive session in the laboratory will familiarize you with the testing procedures during operation, useful devices for plant monitoring as well as prudent methods for record keeping.  All exercises are related to practice.
