Practical lessons for ZHAW students

26 January 2022

Excursion to the Landor fenaco cooperative and the Auhafen AG tank farm

For the 7th time since 2016, Biofuels Switzerland was able to hold a training day for prospective environmental engineers for the students of the module "Biomass as a Resource" taught by Dr Hans-Joachim Nägele from the ZHAW. On the one hand, the students were presented with current information on energy policy, the energy market and CO2 compensation for biogenic liquid fuels in the warm training room. On the other hand, the students were able to gain an overview of the Auhafen tank farm on a tour through the cold and foggy weather.

Olivier Waldner, Managing Director of TAU, gave a tour of the tank farm and led the interested students up a 24-metre-high tank with a volume of 3 million litres.

The students from the module "Biomass as a Resource" are in the last semester of their Bachelor's degree at the University of Applied Sciences. Ulrich Frei's practical inputs and sometimes critical remarks take the students out of the university bubble year after year. This year, too, the budding environmental engineers were able to benefit from the lessons and were particularly impressed by the size of the fuel storage facility.
