Biodigesters are a promising alternative for the treatment of the residues of human activity in urban and rural spaces. Biodigestion is directly related to the fight against climate change – it mitigates greenhouse gases and reduces the use of synthetic fertilisers while providing energy and natural fertiliser.
Since 2009, RedBioLAC – the Network of Biodigesters for Latin America and the Caribbean – connects initiatives, projects, people, and organisations dedicated to biodigestion in the region through its annual conference in countries such as Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Chile, Argentina, Peru, Mexico, Honduras, and Colombia.
In 2018, this annual encounter of the Network will be held in Foz do Iguaçu, Brazil, to celebrate 10 years of continuous work and its positive impacts for the sustainable development of the continent. The conference will take place from September 17 to 21 September 2018 and includes the implementation of small and large-scale introductory courses to biodigestion technology, site visits and an international congress.
Willington Ortiz (Research Fellow in the Division Future Energy and Mobility Structures, Wuppertal Institute) will actively participate in the conference, which is supported and organised by WISIONS of Sustainability, and also hold an opening speech on the first day.
