About the conference

After two jam-packed conference days and an excursion on the third day, we are happy to let you know that our conference “Progress in the treatment and application of manure and digestate products” which took place 16th-18th of October in Schwäbisch Hall, Germany was a great success.

The 500 years old historical building of Neubausaal offered the perfect conditions for this event.

With presentations, company exhibition and lunch area all taking place in the same room, it was very easy for all participants to connect with the speakers, company representatives and other conference visitors.

Missed the fun?

Why? Because there is always another event in the future.
