2016 AD & Biogas Industry Awards Shortlist announced

We are excited to announce that the shortlist for the 2016 AD & Biogas Industry Awards has been released.  The awards – now in their fifth year – celebrate the very best the global AD and Biogas industry has to offer and have attracted a record number of nominations in 2016. 

With the UK AD & Biogas tradeshow becoming a truly international event, this year saw the inclusion of four brand new awards just for international entrants including best international agricultural plant and best international commercial plant.

Charlotte Morton, ADBA CEO, said:

We’re honoured to recognise the exceptional contributions our shortlisted award entries have made to the AD industry, particularly in the face of an increasingly challenging commercial and political environment.  Their dedication to enhancing our industry’s reputation and performance is testament to the innovative and entrepreneurial spirit that has built the AD industry in the UK today, and is poised to make a huge contribution to meeting some of the world’s most pressing challenges not just here in the UK but globally. This is an exceptional industry delivering exceptional value.

The awards will be presented at a gala dinner on 6 July – click here to book your tickets to attend. It will be a truly unmissable night.
