This two full day short course provides participants with clarity about the underpinning operative microbiological populations and interactions that result in the desired product: Biomethane. Starting with the basics of anaerobic digestion microbiology, the course moves on to cover challenges and opportunities associated with maximizing microbiological degradation of varied sources of organic matter. Participants will learn not only what needs monitoring, but why. Important system design considerations that affect microbiological performance are included, and a light-hearted evening dinner session includes an open mic contest for participants to share digester stories, lessons learned, and ask questions. A unique prize will be awarded by audience vote for the declared best story.
