Immediate start

About us

ADBA is the trade association for the UK anaerobic digestion (AD) industry.  With our members, we promote the economic and environmental benefits of AD in the country. We represent organisations from many sectors including AD operators, AD developers, AD equipment providers, water companies, farmers, food & drink retailers, waste companies, universities, researchers and more.

AD is an environmentally-friendly, cost-effective solution to dealing with much of what we think of as “waste”. Instead of burning it, or sending it to landfill, AD plants could potentially turn that waste into 30% of the UK’s household gas or electricity demand. This means less waste to landfill, stable energy prices, and fewer carbon dioxide emissions. The potential global AD market is estimated to be worth £1 trillion – a market the UK is in an excellent position to contribute to and benefit from. This would also contribute to achieving our aims under the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
