History

The Anaerobic Digestion and Bioresources Association (ADBA) was established in September 2009 in order to represent the anaerobic digestion (AD) and bioresources industry. ADBA was set up by Lord Rupert Redesdale (former Liberal Democrat Energy Spokesperson) and ten founder members to help to remove the barriers faced by the whole industry and to support its members in growing their organisations in order to reach the full potential of this diverse industry.

On  1 October 2014 ADBA widened its remit to include emerging technologies and products from the bioeconomy, to reflect this we changed the Association’s name from "The Anaerobic Digestion and Biogas Association" to "The Anaerobic Digestion and Bioresources Association".

Through lobbying activities, working group meetings, high profile industry events, educational material and more, ADBA aims to facilitate the industry’s growth, helping the UK to meet its renewable energy targets and pave the way for a carbon-free future.
