This module introduces the science and principles of Anaerobic Digestion and Biogas generation. It will introduce you to the microorganism activity and the optimal environmental conditions required.

The four-stage process leading to the production of biogas is explained. Various methods and techniques of conditioning and upgrading biogas for local use or for exporting to the gas grid is also introduced.

It is available as an online interactive eLearning module which will take approximately 90 mins to complete.

At the end of the module you will be able to:
• Describe the basic principles of anaerobic conditions and anaerobic digestion,
• List 3 benefits of producing and using biogas,
• Name 3 key principles that impact AD at a practical and operational level and
• Name 3 methods of conditioning and upgrading of biogas produced by AD

The interactive module uses practical examples and visual representations of operational facilities to help explain the theory behind anaerobic digestion.

The module assumes little or no prior knowledge of the subject but is equally effective as a refresher. Suitable for plant operators, supervisors, engineers, consultants, Local authorities, regulators, or anyone who wants to understand the basic principles of anaerobic digestion.

Following the completion of the module, a short multiple-choice quiz is available. Upon successful completion of the quiz a certification is will be generated and can be downloaded.
