The Renewable Energy Association is managing an EU funded biogas training scheme - ‘Advanced Biogas Learning in Europe’ (ABLE) – the scheme is funding two week placements to Germany for around 30 people, enabling them to learn from leading practitioners in all areas of anaerobic digestion (AD) technology.
The aim is to offer UK companies, farming enterprises, edicational establishments or other organisations, active in the UK biogas sector, the opportunity to send people for a two week on-site placement at German biogas plants, laboratories or factories. The project is principally aimed at young people looking to develop a “hands on” career in the green economy, however there is no age barrier for older applicants.
The project, is being run in partnership with the German Biogas and Bioenergy Society (GERBIO), and will offer a range of additional benefits to participants, from hands on industrial experience to first hand engagement with the German language and culture.
Travel, subsistence and half board expenses are fully supported by the funding. Placements started from November 2012 and will run until May 2014.
