Innovative Dutch anaerobic wastewater treatment technologies have been rolled out and are used worldwide. In this webinar and the upcoming face-to-face symposium later this year, we will cover technical and non-technical aspects for implementation of anaerobic technologies: national policy, Dutch organizations abroad, and examples in practice. The aim of the sessions is not only to show the positive sides and highlights of international projects, but also to discuss the encountered constraints and cultural differences, and how to deal with those, between collaborating parties during the project.

With these sessions we would like to make the audience more aware of often unexpected project dynamics in an international setting, to be more successful in international anaerobic treatment projects.
