Name: Strategies and Challenges to Implement Anaerobic Digestion Systems

Sector: Agriculture

Location: Buenos Aires, Argentina

Event Details:

On 14-15 May 2007, the Instituto Nacional de Tecnología Agropecuaria (INTA) of Argentina, along with other Argentinean agencies, hosted a workshop under the auspices of the Methane to Markets Partnership (M2M). An international line-up of delegates came together for collaborative discussions about agricultural methane capture and use projects worldwide. The workshop explored technical, information and market barriers and ways to overcome these in order to deliver successful anaerobic digestion (AD) projects through new markets.

This workshop was held in conjunction with the M2M Agriculture Subcommittee meeting on 16 May 2007.
