Practical Classes on the Site of Biogas Plants Organized for New Generation of Students of the University of Novi Sad

Practical Classes on the Site of Biogas Plants Organized for New Generation of Students of the University of Novi Sad

On Tuesday, 14th of May 2019 the site visit to biogas plants in Bač was organized for students of final year at the Energy and Process Engineering Department of the Faculty of Technical Sciences and Agricultural Engineering in Novi Sad. The construction of biogas plants has been supported by the UNDP/GEF Project “Reducing Barriers to Accelerate the Development of Biomass Markets in Serbia”.

The plants, owned by the group of investors from Slovakia are the part of larger business complex and technology which encompasses logistics center and trench silos, on input side, agri-pellet production facility at the output side in which the heat from CHP units is used.

The visit included practical classes where students could see the combined heat and power production (CHP), as an upgrade to the lectures they attended so far. Students were guided by Miroslav Dian, chief process engineer in plant. Students had an opportunity to learn about the entire process of energy generation from biogas, starting with the collection and storage of row material, through preparation and fermentation to the combustion of biogas in internal combustion engines and the generation of heat and power. Special attention has been paid to energy and material balances of the plant, so the students could observe how the waste heat from CHP units is utilised in the process of agri-pellet production.

After the field visit a several thematic lectures have been delivered to students in the local Center for Organic Production in Selenča. Professor Todor Janjić, delivered a lecture with a practical presentation of the technology of biogas production, and professor Dragan Knezević delivered a lecture on specifics of gas fired engines. Professor Milos Banjac, Assistant Minister in the Ministry of Mining and Energy and the National Project Director of the GEF Project, joined the visit and delivered a lecture on the political and legislative framework, as well as on the national goals in the field of renewable energy in Serbia, after which students gained a wider picture of the significance of such facilities.

This was the fourth visit in a series of educational visits which have been organized in scope of UNDP-GEF project for students of technical faculties of universities in Belgrade and Novi Sad.
