III. Conference on Monitoring & Process Control of Anaerobic Digestion Plants

March 29-30, 2017 in Leipzig

Anaerobic digestion is a complex process of subsequent and interacting degradation steps. A precise control of this complex biological process is crucial to make the biogas production process more efficient, reliable and profitable. Novel process monitoring and controlling tools are necessary to improve performance of anaerobic digestion.
The 3rd International Conference on “Monitoring & Process Control of Anaerobic Digestion Plants” focused on the requirements of measurement tools, best practices and practically implemented applications of monitoring and control devices.


  •     Process simulation & control
  •     Monitoring and control of plant efficiency
  •     Practical experience of process monitoring and control
  •     Laboratory measurements: Reliability & validity
  •     Monitoring for safety and emission reduction purposes
  •     Microbiological analysis: Potential for process characterization and optimization


Special Issue – Paper Publication

Papers of the conference will be published in a Special Issue of the conference in the scientific journal "CET Chemical Engineering & Technology" after the conference.
