ALG-AD Interreg North West Europe project: Langage AD Virtual Open Day

29 June 2020

The ALG-AD team will be holding an open day at Langage AD for interested stakeholders. It will be an opportunity to share our expertise on our solution to valorise excess digestate, by growing algae. And it offers an opportunity to introduce more people to the decision support toolset which is under development. The event will take place on 29th June 2020, and will be a virtual event which can be attended online.
