This two full day short course provides participants with clarity about the underpinning operative microbiological populations and interactions that result in the desired product:  biomethane. Starting with the basics of anaerobic digestion microbiology, the course moves on to cover challenges and opportunities associated with maximizing microbiological degradation of varied sources of organic matter. Participants will learn not only what needs monitoring, but why. Important system design considerations that affect microbiological performance are included, and a light-hearted evening dinner session includes an open mic contest for participants to share digester stories, lessons learned, and ask questions. A unique prize will be awarded by audience vote for the declared best story.

Cost of attending is $350 per person. Pre-registration and payment must be submitted online no later than Monday, January 13. The registration fee includes refreshment breaks, breakfast and lunch on Wednesday and Thursday, dinner on Wednesday at The Statler Hotel Ithaca, and one copy of the conference proceedings. Professional development hours will be offered.
