We invited more than 20 students and young researchers from different disciplines to Kathmandu, Nepal and took a deep dive into the methods and concepts of transdisciplinary research. Here, participants share their experinces.
Okay, biodigesters producing thermal and electrical energy is nothing new. But did you know about their contribution to wastewater management? Subsequent to the first webinar in RedBioLACs webinar series about biodigestion in the agricultural and livestock sector and matching the focus of this year’s World Environment Day, the sequel, talks about two different examples using biodigesters in wastewater treatment and restoration projects.
First, Raúl Botero (Costa Rica) will present a study that introduced wastewater coming from the daily cleaning s of livestock floors before collecting septic sludge and conducting the decontamination process.
Afterwards, Julián Andrés Giraldo (Colombia) will present a restoration project in a micro basin in the Colombian Andes. The recovery efforts of the basin were complemented with decontamination systems, consisting of biodigesters and aquatic plants, to treat waters from livestock farming and to simultaneously generate biogas and biofertilizer.
The event will be held online the 9th of June at 8am Costa Rican time, but will be available afterwards, as well. Please note that the webinar will be held in Spanish.
