A Comment on the Health of the UK Biogas Industry
“The UK Biogas industry is experiencing considerable growth and has expanded seven-fold since 2010 according to the Anaerobic Digestion and Bioresources Association (ADBA).”
With further investment the UK Biogas industry can not only keep growing. But, unfortunately, as the UK biogas industry is expanding it is also beginning to hit trouble with odours and pollution, and at the root of that concern lies the fact that inexperienced AD plant operators can easily make serious mistakes. Mistakes such as these can damage the entire AD and biogas/ biomethane industry.
To endeavour to drastically reduce biogas plant operating errors causing trouble with such as with odours and pollution, the AD industry has been working to provide accredited training for plant operators.
In the first six months of 2017, the steering group concentrated its efforts on the creation of a certification scheme to support plant owners and demonstrate that the UK biogas industry is adhering to particularly high standards in the installation of biogas plants.
In late 2017, ADBA helped launch a new Biogas Plant Operator Certification Scheme for the United Kingdom, and subsequently a number of UK biogas plant operators have been trained and certified as complying with industry best practice at the AD plants. There is a reasonable expectation that the costs spent in obtaining training and certification will be more than recouped by lower insurance costs for AD Certification scheme members.
So, there is every expectation that further investment the UK Biogas industry can not only continue without damage from bad publicity, and in so doing will help the UK government to meet the UK's energy security, food security and greenhouse gas goals.
Biogas UK as an industry is, like many others in late 2018, suffering from low investor confidence while the nation waits for Brexit details to be resolved. Nevertheless, 2018 looks set to see more United Kingdom anaerobic digestion, biogas and especially biomethane plants completed.
In addition, government policy will surely have to be more positive toward the industry than it has been in recent years because the advantages offered by anaerobic digestion and biogas fuel use to reduce air-pollution, and to meet climate change objectives are uniquely capable of supporting their policies.
