Aside from the workshop, INTA also conducted a field trip in the Argentina plans or Pampas, the country’s famed agricultural belt, to visit several biogas plants operating in the area. We visited cities like Pergamino, Rio Cuarto, Venado Tuerto, and Rosario in search of knowledge and insight about biogas project development and operations.
