IV. CMP International Conference on Monitoring & Process Control of Anaerobic Digestion Plants

Scientific paper to the conference are published in the the Special Issue of the IV. CMP.

March 26-27, 2019 in Leipzig

Anaerobic digestion is a complex process of subsequent and interacting degradation steps. The requirements and standards for the operation of biogas plants are changing due to requirements of the legal side and security of supply. Thus, a precise control of this complex biological process is crucial to make the biogas production process more efficient, reliable and profitable.

Currently there is a growing need for flexibility regarding the substrate, energy and material provision (polygeneration). Thus, challenges increase for operation, monitoring and control of biogas facilities in all dimensions. Novel and optimized process monitoring and control systems are necessary to improve the performance of anaerobic digestion.

The IV. CMP International Conference on Monitoring & Process Control of Anaerobic Digestion Plants focuses on the requirements of measurement tools, best practices and practically implemented applications of monitoring and control devices.

Stakeholders in the biogas sector will have the opportunity to meet, exchange experience and get information on newest solutions to optimize the efficiency of anaerobic digestion plants from experts in the biogas field at an international level.
