UK AD and World Biogas Expo, the largest international trade show dedicated solely to the anaerobic digestion and biogas industry, returns in 2018 to provide the latest market and technology news, sector by sector, as well as a platform for industry professionals from the UK and overseas to network, share experiences and do business.
