Welcome to the ADBA website
ADBA is the trade association for the anaerobic digestion (AD) industry in the UK and companies and organisations working on novel technologies and processes that compliment the anaerobic digestion process and products. With our members we promote the economic and environmental benefits of AD in the UK.
We represent organisations from many sectors including: AD operators, AD developers, AD equipment providers, water companies, farmers, food & drink retailers, waste companies, universities and more.
On this site you can find out all about anaerobic digestion and how our organisation can help you.
Anaerobic digestion is the simple, natural breakdown of organic matter into biogas (carbon dioxide and methane) and organic fertiliser called digestate. It is a similar process to that which takes place in the stomach of a cow.
Bioresources include technologies and processes which are complementary to the AD process and can help increase profitability and efficiency.
We represent AD plant operators and developers, as well as farmers, food and drink retailers, water, waste management, utility and transport companies; local authorities, financiers, AD equipment manufacturers, suppliers and builders, universities and research institutes, and many more – indeed anyone with an interest in the industry.
We work on your behalf with government departments and agencies, and we’ll offer you policy and regulatory guidance, market information, support and a whole host of resources, and if you are a supplier we can showcase the benefits of your products and services directly to the widest range of interested parties.
