ADNet supports ECR Students to Beijing  The IWA World Congress on AD in Beijing is now over and we are pleased to be able to support our early career researcher Travel Bursary recipients: Christian Aragon-Briceno (University of Leeds), Alba Serna-Maza (Southampton University), Andrew Zealand (Newcastle University), Julian Pietrzyk (Edinburgh University), Roshni Paul (Birmingham City University) and Chihiro Masusawa (Southampton University).  Special congratulations to Christian Aragon-Briceno of the University of Leeds who won an ‘Outstanding Poster Award’ in the face of stiff competition - well done! The poster was entitled “Evaluation and comparison of product yields and bio-methane potential from hydrothermally pre-treated sewage sludge”.   There are two more large International conferences coming up in 2018 which are highly relevant – the European Biogas Association (EBA) bi-annual conference in Antwerp and Biogas Science in Torino. Do you know an Early Career Researcher who could showcase their work? Point them to our bursaries!

The AD Network has two upcoming events of interest to members: “Valorisation of Animal By-products – Challenges and Opportunities”: a joint AD Network/Food Waste Network Event, Centre Parcs, Longleat,  7th March 2018, 10.00-16.30. The Food Waste Network and Anaerobic Digestion Network are organising this free-of-charge* 1-day event to examine current and emerging technologies for the valorisation of animal by-products (ABP) and co-products. The programme will include case study presentations from academia, industry, and governmental organisations working in this area and aims to identify the key challenges (e.g. technology, safety, regulation) and opportunities for the valorisation these types of biomaterials.  The programme will focus on following three interrelated themes:  - Valorisation strategies for fisheries/slaughterhouse/egg by-products and co-products - The role of anaerobic digestion within potential valorisation strategies - Added value products with good potential for commercialisation For interested participants, a tour has been arranged at the end of the event to nearby Malaby Biogas which handles ABP materials. The agenda is available here and registration available at: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/X8V9K5F “The annual AD Network ECR Conference”, University of York, 16/17th July 2018 This entirely free Early Career Researcher event includes attendance, accommodation and a conference dinner.
