Show highlights 'untapped potential' for AD in waste management

This year the UK’s biggest dedicated anaerobic digestion (AD) and biogas event, UK AD & Biogas (3-4 July, NEC Birmingham), will highlight the role AD will play in the transformation of the waste management sector, helping to reduce the 5.75m tonnes of food waste currently sent to landfill at an annual cost of £508m.

Free to attend, this two-day trade show and conference, organised by ADBA brings together all the relevant sectors of the market, facilitating discussion and providing a forum for the waste management industry to learn about the latest AD developments and opportunities to work with other sectors.

Stuart Hayward-Higham, Development Director, SITA UK, said:

The organic waste market is evolving very quickly and there is still huge untapped potential for anaerobic digestion in the UK for food waste, presenting opportunities for waste management companies to innovate and explore new ways of collecting and treating waste. UK AD & Biogas is the place to learn about developments in the AD market, bringing all the relevant sectors together, to discuss the pertinent issues, working together to solve them and grow the industry.

Claire Kneller, Special Adviser – Infrastructure Development, WRAP, said:

I’m pleased to confirm that WRAP will once again be exhibiting at UK AD & Biogas in July, as well as participating in the conference programme. We have always found the trade show to be an excellent opportunity to meet with our stakeholders from across the AD sector, especially from the waste management industry and we look forward to seeing you on stand E69 throughout the two days.

Charlotte Morton, Chief Executive, ADBA, said:

Recent research from The Green Alliance showed that diverting food waste from landfill is worth over a £1bn when you take into account the avoided landfill tax and the value recovered from the renewable energy generated and recycled nutrients and organic matter. Waste food contains critical finite resources that are vital not only to help address food and energy security and wider economic growth, but also the profits and success of each individual business.

Louise Wallace, Commercial Director, ADBA said:

With over 240 exhibitors, 24 conference sessions, 22 seminars and workshops, one-to-one professional farming, finance, feedstock, planning, permitting and legal advice clinics this year’s trade show is a little different. With four themes across two days; business case, feedstock, technology and operations, and best use of outputs, we are exploring topics from every angle.

Whether you are interested in the key policy drivers, the industry strategy, financial incentives, regulatory challenges, innovation in process and technology or case studies from your peers the show will deliver the most up to date and informative content, the most interesting debate, the biggest range of technology and equipment suppliers and the most fascinating insights into AD, collection and treatment of waste and biomethane as a transport fuel giving you everything you would want from an AD and biogas show.
