Dr. Amro Hassanein awarded best poster award on his research “Impact of Nanoparticles on Biogas Production from Poultry Litter” during International Conference on Bioresource Technology for Bioenergy, Bioproducts & Environmental Sustainability (BBIORESTEC), Stages, Spain. This research is part of his work with Dr. Lansing on evaluating the effect that nanoparticles (NPs) additions have on increasing the viability of poultry litter AD, which includes determining the most effective concentration of NP additives to increase methane production, tracking NP degradation during digestion, and uptake of NPs by crops in lab-scale hydroponic system when the digested bio-slurry is used to fertilize the crops.
Dr. Amro Hassanein received an invitation from the Egyptian Minister of Immigration and Egyptians Affairs Abroad, Minister Nabila Makram, to participate in the “Egypt Can” conference that took place in Luxor, Egypt, between 24 to 27 February this year. Twenty three scientists from abroad were invited to discuss and develop a strategy for Egypt’s future in water, sustainable development, and energy under the auspices of the President of Egypt. The conference was attended by several Egyptian ministers including the Prime Minister of Egypt, the Minister of Higher Education, the Minister of Environment, the Minister of Irrigation, the Minister of Agriculture, and the Minister of Military Production.
The conference was a great opportunity to meet with Egyptian scientists distinguished by scientific excellence. During the conference, Dr. Hassanein presented his ENST post-doc research experience with Dr. Stephanie Lansing’s lab group and on his research experience in China. Dr. Hassanein was also invited to meet with several ministers in person to discuss several future ideas and plans for recycling agricultural waste and producing renewable energy to solve some environmental problems, as well as to open direct channels of communication with some of the ministers including the Minister of Environment, the Minister of Agriculture, and the Minister of Industry. Dr. Hassanein was invited to several live and pre-recorded TV interviews to discuss the presented ideas to the community.
At the end of the conference, Dr. Hassanein was honored with two awards by Minister Nabila Makram, the Minister of Immigration and Egyptians Affairs Abroad. The first award was presented to Dr. Hassanein for being the youngest scientist in the conference, and the second for his active participation in the conference.

SNV, the Asian Development Bank (ADB) and the Ministry of Agriculture in China organised a three-day International Workshop on Domestic Biogas from 20-22 November in Chengdu, China.
Almost 120 participants from over twenty countries.
The workshop aimed to interactively evaluate the performance of national domestic biogas programs in Asia and to assess their outlook. Additionally, the event discussed in-depth the latest developments and opportunities of the following key issues in biogas programs carbon financing, credit facilities, product development, use of bio-slurry and enabling environments of biogas sectors.
