10th RedBioLAC Annual Conference 2018

News from WISIONS posted on August 6th, 2018

This year marks the 10th edition of the annual RedBioLAC Conference, which will take place from 17th – 21st September 2018 in Foz do Iguaçu, Brazil. Read moreMinimize

Biodigesters are a promising alternative for the treatment of the residues of human activity in urban and rural spaces. Biodigestion is directly related to the fight against climate change – it mitigates greenhouse gases and reduces the use of synthetic fertilisers while providing energy and natural fertiliser.

Since 2009, RedBioLAC – The Network of Biodigesters for Latin America and the Caribbean – connects initiatives, projects, people and organisations dedicated to biodigestion in the region through its annual conference in countries such as Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Chile, Argentina, Peru, Mexico, Honduras and Colombia.

In 2018, this annual encounter of the Network will be held in Foz do Iguaçu, Brazil, to celebrate 10 years of continuous work and its positive impacts for the sustainable development of the continent.

The conference will take place from September 17th – 21st September 2018 and includes the implementation of small and large-scale introductory courses to biodigestion technology, site visits and an international congress.
