Welcome Message from Conference Chairs
Institut National de la Recherche Agronomique, Narbonne, France
Former Executive Director, Knowledge Network Institute of Thailand
The conference chairs cordially invite you to attend the ADTech-SAB 2018 conference from June 4-7, 2018 in the ancient walled city of Chiang Mai. ADTech-SAB 2018 is the 2nd international conference organized under the MoU between the Faculty of Agro-Industry, Chiang Mai University, Thailand and Institut National de la Rechercher Agronomique (INRA), Narbonne, France; in collaboration with King Mongkut′s University of Technology Thonburi (KMUTT). Furthermore, we can create a new network; which comprises Griffith University, Australia, and University of Arkansas (Fayetteville) USA. The conference issues are extended topics related not only to anaerobic technology, but also the environment, alternative bio-energy, and bio-refinery. Actually, Anaerobic Digestion (AD) is a series of biological processes in which microorganisms break down biodegradable material in the absence of oxygen. The process is used widely as a source of bio-renewable energy such as biogas or hydrogen. Livestock manure, agriculture residues, organic fraction of municipal solid waste, agro-industrial waste, high strength agro-industrial wastewater and residual fats, oils and grease, as well as various other organic waste streams are being converted into biogas by a range of anaerobic digestion technologies.
This conference will provide a primary platform for in-depth presentation and discussion on various topics that cover all aspects of anaerobic digestion. It will be well attended in a friendly environment conducive to oral and poster presentations, with the chance of many meetings and discussions. We are confident that sharing your scientific knowledge; and the attractions of Chiang Mai, will make for a very memorable experience. This is a good time of the year to visit Thailand, as June is a joyful month with a comfortable environment and many different kinds of fruit to sample. It is worth noting that Chiang Mai is steeped in a long history and tranquil culture of the Lanna Kingdom.
We sincerely encourage you to attend the ADTech-SAB 2018 in Chiang Mai and look forward to making you very welcome.
