Ph.D. thesis subject: “Study and prediction of the impact of anaerobic digestion design parameters on the carbon characteristics of digestates and their effect on the structural stability of soils”

As part of a joint project between UMR SAS and UR OPAALE, I am conducting a thesis project to characterise the digestates produced by on-farm anaerobic digestion, and to investigate their impact when used as organic fertiliser or soil amendment on soil aggregate stability – an important indicator of soil health and resistance to erosion.
