Due to the COVID 19 pandemic and its expected evolution in the world, in particular in our region, we took the decision to postpone DAAL 14 to a date to be determined in 2022. Mexico remains the organizing country, preferably keeping the venue of Cozumel island.
With the purpose of gathering the anaerobic community of the region in this difficult year, accompanied by colleagues from other parts of the world, we have decided to organize an online substitute event, in the tradition of friendship and collaboration that characterizes the DAAL series.
The Latin American Meetings on Anaerobic Digestion (J-DAAL) will be organized online, in four virtual venues:
It is important to mention that IWA has agreed to collaborate with its brand, supporting J-DAAL.
We look forward to your valuable participation in this alternate event.
Gracias por su apoyo y comprensión
El Comité Organizador
Mexico has already organized two previous events in the series: the first in November 1990 (Mexico City) and the seventh in October 2002 (Merida). The other venues have been Cuba, Uruguay, Colombia, Chile and Brazil (all twice) and Peru. On this occasion, the 30 years of the DAAL series will be celebrated..
The Symposium brings together researchers, graduate students, consultants, engineering companies and suppliers of equipment and technology related to anaerobic processes. It constitutes an excellent space for the exchange of knowledge and experiences based on the common interest in the sustainable management of organic waste in Latin America, applying anaerobic processes to reduce environmental impacts and recover resources (such as biogas and nutrients).
More than 350 participants are expected, attracted by both the traditional high scientific and technical level of the Symposium, as well as the natural and cultural attractions that Cozumel, the Mayan region, and Mexico offer to the visitor.
For its 14th edition, the event will be organized by the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) and other Mexican institutions. It is supported by the International Water Association (IWA) through its Anaerobic Digestion Specialist Group.
