31st May 2023

Introductory Seminar to Mechanical-Biological Treatment

LIVE: 09:00 – 18:00 CET. – only available online

Hosted by tech.forum



Are you interested in learning about the latest waste treatment technologies? Look no further than our upcoming English language seminar on Mechanical-Biological Treatment (MBT). Taking place on May 31st, this seminar covers a wide range of MBT-related topics, including the selection of appropriate waste treatment technologies, MBT technologies and examples, and quality supervision of major solid MBT output fractions and MBT process control.

Attendees will have the opportunity to dive deep into mechanical and biological treatment methods, as well as explore a variety of MBT-related technologies, such as wet mechanic separation technology and mechanical-physical stabilization. The seminar will also address crucial considerations, such as controlling gaseous emissions, encapsulation, and air management.

In addition to technical discussions, the seminar will also provide a practical overview of MBT in Germany, covering the history, legal background, and results of a comprehensive evaluation of German MBTs in 2007. Cost considerations and the adoption of MBT to local situations will also be explored.

Whether you’re a waste management professional or simply interested in the latest sustainable technologies, this seminar provides an excellent opportunity to learn about the state of the art in mechanical-biological treatment. Join us on May 31st for a comprehensive and engaging seminar on MBT.
