First of all, I have to thank my parents. For their continued faith in me, even though Iseemed to study forever. Without their support, it would have taken me a couple of years more to finish my studies.
Dank je wel papa en mama
And also Paul, a friend of mine ever since kindergarten,
skilful and keen eye hashelped me considerably with the digester drawings in Catia. Without him the drawingswould have remained at the level of the office shapes...
Thanks to the NGO WECF I had the opportunity to visit biogas projects in Georgiaand
to obtain some „field‟ experience and to present some of my findings
. Special thanksto Sabine, Anna, Keti and Rostom.And Katja Grolle, she trained me to conduct anaerobic batch digestion experiments.She told me that I am in the great position to learn from the mistakes she has made inthe past. I am sure, that without her mistakes I would still be conducting these
Dank je wel!
Then Wilko van Loon, the two conversations with him were the most efficient ever;everything he told me was directly of use. Without his help the modeling of a solarassisted biogas plants would have been quite rudimentary.
Dank je Wilko!
not last, Grietje Zeeman. I can‟t thank her enough
for the freedom she gaveme to write this thesis, in terms of subjects covered and in terms of time spending. Hertrust in me is very much appreciated. Furthermore, her enthusiasm for the subject hasinfected me to push forward a career or to opt for promotional research in this field.What also has to be said, her critical attitude and approach to my writings has definitely pushed my writing and evaluating skills to a higher level.
Ook erg bedankt!
