The Advanced Biological Waste-to-Energy Technologies (ABWET) Marie Skłodowska-Curie, Innovative Training Networks, European Joint Doctorates project provides education and research at PhD level on environmental technologies that convert waste materials into bioenergy, training doctoral candidates to think globally and work in multidisciplinary research teams. ABWET is centered on environmental technologies for treatment of waste, with a focus on anaerobic treatment processes, valorisation of the digestate and biofuel clean-up. ABWET focuses on fundamental and applied research of different treatment technologies as well as on the development of innovative recovery and reuse technologies with enhanced market potential. The ABWET EJD aims to continue the successful Erasmus Mundus Joint Doctorate Environmental Technologies for Contaminated Soils, Sediments and Solid Waste (ETeCoS3), which developed a joint PhD education and research curriculum with joint selection, supervision and PhD defense procedures. ABWET beneficiaries are University of Cassino and Southern Lazio (Italy), UNESCO-IHE (Netherlands), Université Paris-Est (France) and Tampere University of Technology (Finland).
