The conversion from biomass by products and waste has the potential to make sustainable contribution to the Southern African renewable industry. The Agro-industrial sectors are key role player in this. The IBERT Biogas Training Seminar at the Innovation Hub Pretoria, Gauteng has the objective to develop the tools required to making this a reality.
We invite farmers, engineers, scientists, project developers, consultants, investors and the financing sector to participate in the biogas training seminar .
The course will be facilitated by South Africa market specialists with local and international experience. The course will facilitate a workable understanding of identifying opportunities and converting them in to realistic projects.
Who is the course for?
- Biogas plant operator and staff
- Farmers planning to invest and operate a biogas plant
- Academic institutions
- Central and local government officials engaged in AD
- Banks and investment houses
Interactive classroom teaching with all experts available for comments, questions and answers. With participants active involvement and practical exercises.

WASTE: An alternative to energy?
Technology process, challenges, solution and the treatment technologies for organic waste and its economics development.
The state of South Africa’s electricity system was in dire straits losing almost half of its available capacity plunging the country into stage-load-shedding. Experts expect the situation to get worse come winter, despite the government’s confidence that the power grid is sufficiently stable. The actual amount of electricity that can be provided to the grid – can vary from day to day.
South Africa’s energy crisis requires a sustainable, diverse energy-mix. Waste is an alternative for energy.
The waste-to-energy process, can be produced from raw materials such as agricultural waste, manure, municipal waste, plant material, organic waste, sewage, green waste or food waste and waste water.
Waste management is a critical issue for most African cities as a result of the huge generation of mountains of waste stemming from increases in urban populations over the last few decades, coupled with access to consumer goods by a fast-growing middle class. And waste generation is expected to increase rapidly in the future. City authorities are therefore faced with the challenge of managing urban waste with limited resources at their disposal.
Therefore, the aim of this summit is to discuss how waste or solid waste can therefore be used as an alternative to energy and the technology process for the benefit of South Africans. There are enormous economic advantages of converting waste-to-energy.
EXPANDING BIOGAS’S RENEWABLE FOOTPRINT IN AFRICA
Back for the 2nd Year, the BIOGAS AFRICA FORUM 2017 is held in partnership with GIZ and seeks to promote the development of the biogas sector in Africa as a solution to their clean energy, clean cooking and waste management needs.
Biogas, and its associated treatment technologies and processes, is truly one of the most versatile and useful renewable energy developments with today’s technology and could provide a revolution to the energy and water needs of Africa.
The BIOGAS AFRICA FORUM 2017 will bring together the players from across the biogas value chain in Africa. From policy makers and government ocials learning about sane policies and rules that will govern the industry, to owners of plantations, mills and factories
learning about how much investing into biogas projects is going to make them, this conference is for everyone looking to entering and thriving in this industry.

In South Africa, the Renewable Energy Independent Power Producer Procurement (REIPPP) programme has not sufficiently supported the growth of biogas industry.
