Plant Optimisation Training
May 11 @ 9:30 am - 4:00 pm£195 – £295
The training is delivered by Angela Cronjé, a chemical engineer with 15 years experience in organic waste processing on operational plants.
The course will address the mechanical and biological processes within an AD plant: how to monitor, assess and optimise performance. It is ideal for both new and experienced operators to gain an overview of plant operation, to explore the different options for monitoring activity and to understand and interpret the resulting data. We will see how the analysis can then be used to modify or vary the inputs to stabilise the digester, improve efficiency or improve the quality and/or quantity of the outputs.
Whilst aimed primarily at on-farm and food-waste AD, the course is relevant for all types of plant, including those in the planning, design and construction stages.
