Keen Interest in “German Biogas Training Day” at the BIOGAS AFRICA FORUM 2016
The strong participation in the training day reflects the current significant demand of qualified professional education and know how in the African biogas sector. Most of the existing biogas plants in Africa are small scale and very simple constructions operated by one household or small farm. They usually produce biogas only for cooking. Therefore, people have little experience in the operation of high-tech industrial scale anaerobic digestion plants. The lack of knowledge extends from the basic biological fermentation processes to the practical handling of modern plant equipment and process automation systems.
Accordingly, the demand for further training courses is high. Particularly for women, the biogas sector offers interesting perspectives. WISEE (Women in Sustainable Energy and Entrepreneurship), for example, a Kenyan organisation of women engaging in Renewable Energies, seized the opportunity to propose their participation in a biogas workshop exclusively set up for women. These training courses are part of a comprehensive biogas curriculum that SLP has designed within a develoPPP.de-project funded by the German Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development and SEQUA, aiming at specific and at the same time broad-impact skill building for future biogas plant operators.
