Online Capacity Building of SAARC Professionals on “Commercial Scale Biogas Plants”

SEC successfully conducted 5 day on-line training for SAARC Professionals on “ Commercial Scale Biogas Plants” held from Monday, 23 August 2021 to Friday, 27 August 2021. The online training facilitated the participants to learn about the various aspects of commercial scale biogas plants i.e., fundamentals, construction, operation, maintenance, economics, environmental/social facets, of commercial scale biogas plants. The five-day technical sessions were focused on: basic concepts of the biogas technology, global biogas market, types of biogas plants and feedstocks, biogas plant (small scale/commercial) design, biogas applications, performance assessment (scalability/financial viability/techno-economic analysis), regulations, challenges, and the existing biogas technology along with its future potential in SAARC member states. The comprehensive sessions were designed to target a broad audience, ranging from policy/decision makers, prospective biogas plant developers to project managers, researchers, and other stakeholders working with the biogas technology.
