Feedstock, sampling and digester health
26th November 2019 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm£159 – £269
An ADBA learning and development event.
For tickets – scroll down.
This workshop will look at two vital aspects of AD: the careful planning and management of feedstock, including: mixing, blending, additives, storing, clamping and feed-in. Then also the biology within the plant – how this can be measured, monitored, analysed and encouraged, including how additives impact quality and quantity of output.
It will draw on the experiences of industry specialists to help all attendees gain a better understanding of the digester health and how to influence it.
