Biogas from agriculture got more and more popular in Germany during the last 15 years. Now we do have around 8.000 biogas plants in the countryside. The gas from digesters from wastewater plants is the same from agriculture. The qualification of the two operators differs extremely. That is the reason that DVGW, DWA and the Biogas Association started last year with an initiative to set up a common 2 days training course for safety in biogas plants in agriculture. It ends with a test.
Yesterday we checked different applications from training institutions who wants to join the training pool.
This training system will help to qualify around 10.000 staff in the years to come.
