AD16 Is Also ‘the Place To Be’ For Newcomers

AD16 is also ‘the place to be’ for newcomers

Anyone who thinks that the four-day Anaerobic Digestion Congress is only interesting for seasoned ‘AD’ers is wrong. Everyone can learn about the most important basic principles of anaerobic digestion during an extensive introductory workshop.

“For two full days, interested participants are completely submerged in the field of anaerobic digestion,” explains Lise Appels, professor at KU Leuven (Belgium). She is a members of the organizational committee of AD16 together with her colleagues Raf Dewil ( KU Leuven ), Ilse Smets ( KU Leuven ), Korneel Rabaey ( Ghent University ) and Jo De Vrieze ( Ghent University ). “Our basic workshop is interesting for beginning and postgraduate students, but also for people from the industry who want to renew their laboratory.”

Workshop provides answers

What exactly is anaerobic digestion? What types of reactors are there and which type is best for you? What do you have to pay attention to when buying a reactor? What are the pros and cons? How do you test the process? This basic workshop – working title: AD101 – answers all these questions.


During the AD16 we offer (base) workshops. Two in Belgium and two in the Netherlands. Appels advises interested parties to register in time for the basic workshop. “Keep an eye on the website and newsletter for information about registering. Make sure you’re there because AD16 is the most important conference for our field.”
