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.
