The Plant Optimisation Training Course, instructed by Angela Cronjé, a seasoned chemical engineer with two decades of experience in managing organic waste processing on functional plants, is designed to provide operators with an in-depth understanding of the mechanical and biological processes involved in an AD plant.
This course caters to both novice and experienced operators, and will cover a range of topics, such as plant operation, options for monitoring activity, and the interpretation of resulting data. Moreover, attendees will learn how to analyse data and use it to modify inputs, improve efficiency, stabilise the digester, and enhance output quality and quantity. The course includes a section on troubleshooting common issues and provides an overview of the biological processes in an AD plant.
While the course is primarily aimed at on-farm and food-waste AD, it is also relevant to other plant types, including those in the planning, design, and construction phases.
This training program will educate AD operators and plant biologists on fundamental biological principles, monitoring techniques to ensure the health of biological systems, and methods for collecting and analysing relevant data. The course will also cover strategies for resolving issues that may arise during the process. Attendees are expected to have prior knowledge of basic digester biology and be interested in expanding their knowledge to enhance biological health and optimise gas production.
Who is it for?
We encourage AD operators, AD Developers, AD Funders, Biologists, Feedstock Managers, Policy makers, Consultants, Technology providers and others to attend.
