The Master Course Postgraduate Programme Renewable Energy at the University of Oldenburg will be holding its annual workshop on mass dissemination of domestic bio-digesters in developing countries.

This year the workshop will start 7th April (Monday morning) and will go on till 11th April (Friday noon).

Long term experience will be presented by specialists of bio-digester programs in (South-East) Asian countries. Our dedicated experts from SNV Netherlands, Jan Lam  and Felix ter Heegde, have been working in several biogas-programs tailored to rural areas of developing countries for more than 30 years. The workshop includes practical sessions in which you get in touch with a bio-reactor and you will experience handling and working with biogas. There will be time also for discussion sessions and networking.
