AD Network

Three lucky researchers presented at the 14th World Congress on Anaeroic Digestion held in Vina del Mar Chile, from 15-18 Nov and had their travel funded by the BBSRC Anaerobic Digestion Network. Hitesh Boghani from the University of South Wales presented a paper on “Sizing Longitudinal Modularised Up-scalable MFCs for Their Use in Wastewater Treatment”. Newcastle University’s Rebeca Gonzalez Cabaleiro presented her paper on “Metabolic Energy-baed Modelling Explains the pH Effect on Anaerobic Fermentation Product Yields”. And Santiago Pacheco-Ruiz of the University of Southampton presented his paper on “MCRT Effect on Membrane Fouling, Biomass Characteristics and Performance of a Gravitational SAnMBR”. If you are an Early Career Researcher and interested in applying for travel vouchers to present and UK or international conferences, see the information on our funding page.
