Keeping Northern Ireland’s Anaerobic Digestion Sector Energised

Northern Ireland is a world leader in Anaerobic Digestion

Northern Ireland has more Anaerobic Digestion plants per capita than England, Wales or Scotland with superb biogas market growth of over 2,000% in recent years. As a result, ADBA have set up the Northern Ireland National Conference to maintain growth and energise Northern Ireland’s Anaerobic Digestion Industry.

However, could those biogas plants be performing even better by taking advantage of the latest know-how and technologies available at ADBA’s inaugural Northern Ireland National Conference? Which brings the entire Northern Irish AD Industry together to share experiences, see the latest technologies and maximise revenues therefore growing the positive impact that Anaerobic Digestion has on the rural economy.

Additionally, there are new opportunities to explore, too, given the spotlight on Northern Ireland as a result of the general election and the additional support for agriculture outlined in the Government’s confidence and supply agreement.

The Anaerobic Digestion and Bioresources Association Northern Ireland National Conference aims to support AD operators, feedstock providers and policy makers to ensure that the Northern Ireland rural economy prospers with improved renewable energy generation, so don’t delay and sign up for your pass here today.
