We highly recommend attendance at the ADBA National Conference 2021 which will focus on delivering Net Zero in transport, heat, agriculture and waste management and crucially also finding the money for it.
We have re-published the ADBA press release below. All those interested in anaerobic digestion and biogas in all nations should act now to register as there is not a lot of time left to do so!
Press release – ADBA National Conference 2021 to look at how to deliver Net Zero across transport, heat, agriculture and waste management – and find the money for it.
- ADBA National Conference 2021 will take place online on 16th and 17th February
- It will look at the hardest to decarbonise sectors of transport, heat and agriculture, and at the financial structures that can best support AD in the post-Covid Green Recovery
- It will aim to demonstrate the value of AD in achieving Paris Agreement targets ahead of COP26
We are in a decisive decade for decarbonisation, which includes urgently managing organic wastes to prevent the harmful methane emissions they would otherwise emit. This involves treating these resources through anaerobic digestion (‘AD’), the nature-based technology which is able to extract the most value from them – recycling them into green energy and CO2, biofertilisers and other valuable bioproducts.
The AD industry sits at the heart of the circular economy of organic wastes and is ready to deliver on this today. These will be the key messages of next week's ADBA National Conference 2021 hosted by the Anaerobic Digestion and Bioresources Association (ADBA). Entitled “Green gas: ready to go, ready to scale, ready to deliver Net Zero”, the 2021 edition of the annual conference on 16th and 17th February will feature sessions on:
- Realising the potential of biomethane in transport
- The role of AD and green gas in decarbonising heat
- Agriculture and AD – working together for Net Zero
- Digestate – How AD impacts clean air
- The impact of new food waste regulations for AD in the UK
- Financing the Green Recovery in the UK
Confirmed speakers include:
- Alan Whitehead, MP and Shadow Minister, Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy
- Sam Hare, Waste & Recycling Policy Advisor, Defra
- Matt Hindle, Head of Gas, Energy Networks Association
- John Coates, Vice Chair, LARAC
- James Alexander, CEO, UK Sustainable Investment and Finance Association
- David Hurren, CEO, Air Liquide
- Dr Jonathan Scurlock, Chief Advisor, Renewable Energy, National Farmers' Union
- Dr Jem Woods, Reader in Sustainable Development, Imperial College
- Kathy Nicholls, Senior Advisor, Environment and Business, Environment Agency
- Thomas Minter, Director, Malaby Biogas
- Keith Warburton, Decarbonisation Development Manager, Wales & West Utilities

“To fulfil AD's potential to reduce the UK's greenhouse gas emissions by 6% over the next decade“, says Charlotte Morton, ADBA's Chief Executive. “it is imperative for the UK government to acknowledge that in AD they have a mature, future-proof technology readily available to help decarbonise key sectors of the economy, in the process creating 60,000 green jobs. Our message to the UK government, months before it hosts COP26, is that AD must be considered in the UK's Net Zero strategy, and the conference will demonstrate why.”
The conference will also feature extensive breaks for networking and engaging with the conference sponsors: Air Liquide, Beamex, Clarke Energy, Desotec, Eco2, Flogas, Macquarie, Omex, Target Renewables and Vaisala.Register Here Now!
