ADBA teamed up with the Chartered Institution of Wastes Management (CIWM), Environmental Services Association (ESA) and the Renewable Energy Association (REA). The group confirmed to the Environment Agency (EA) that industry will be supporting the revision process — including funds for the revision — of the Compost and Anaerobic Digestate Quality Protocols (QPs). The EA replied that these QPs would not be withdrawn at the end of May and will remain in force during the revision process. On 9th and 10th June, this group of trade associations will host workshops to discuss the key issues on QP revision. After that, they will meet in a ‘Task and Finish Group’ with the EA.
