Cornell University’s College of Agriculture and Life Sciences will be hosting a short course on January 15 and 16 focused on anaerobic digestion, titled “Anaerobic Digestion Process Fundamentals and Management.” The course will feature a variety of sessions with an emphasis on understanding microbiology, co-digestion and production of biomethane. Improving digester management and increasing their presence on farms will help government, the general public and the private sector in their pursuit of renewable energy sources and greenhouse gas reduction goals.

Actionable information and skill development are a focus of the course, which will offer professional development hours (PDH) and an opportunity to network with industry counterparts and glean knowledge from experts in the field of anaerobic digestion. Prepare your best digester stories for the open mic contest at Wednesday’s dinner for the chance to win a prize.

Registration is $350 per person, which includes the two-day course, refreshment breaks, breakfast and lunch on Wednesday and Thursday, dinner on Wednesday, and one copy of the conference proceedings. The short course will be held at Stocking Hall, with dinners and evening sessions held at the Statler Hotel. Pre-registration and payment must be submitted online no later than Monday, January 13.
