Climate Emergency Declaration: Biogas Can Abate 12% of GHG Emissions by 2030

Climate Emergency Declaration by governments and communities is of little or no use unless it results in an action plan, so the Biogas and Climate Change Commitment Declaration must be unique. In this a group of highly respected organisations has declared that, used to its fullest, anaerobic digestion and biogas can abate 12% of global […]

Shale Gas in the UK: Not Needed Just Move Funding to Biogas Production

Shale Gas in UK is halted! But, it’s not a problem! Why? The UK government has been subsidizing Shale Gas in the UK with massive tax breaks on investment in the idea. But now, due to unexpected earthquake activity directly initiated deep underground wherever there have been fracking experiments; all exploration has been stopped indefinitely. […]

Climate Change Emergency UK – ADBA’s General Election Manifesto for Net Zero Emissions

Solving the Climate Change Emergency UK will require urgent action after the new parliament returns. ADBA (the UK’s Anaerobic Digestion and Bioresources Association)  has the technology to act quickly on this, so here are ADBA’s General Election Manifesto measures which could help the UK achieve Net Zero Emissions. Whether you agree that the UK is […]

Anaerobic Digestion Regulations – UK Environmental Protection, Animal By-products, Duty of Care, Health and Safety

Anaerobic Digestion Regulations surprisingly, don’t exist in the UK. At least not all neatly bundled into a single government act or rule book. Instead, AD Plant operators must comply with a range of statutory requirements (“Laws” to you and me). The four which must be tackled once Planning Permission has been obtained are as follows: […]

Advanced Conversion Technologies to Extract Energy from Waste – AD Rivals?

Advanced Conversion Technologies is the term for technologies such as gasification and pyrolysis. These could become competitors with Anaerobic Digestion. In fact, a number of innovative advanced, high temperature processes for Energy from Waste/ Waste to Energy, are beginning to emerge from the far east. These may become more efficient (after further development), than conventional […]

Mass extinction in 2100 - Decarbonizing through biogas production.

Reduce Mass Extinction in 2100 by Enabling Biogas Decarbonization Now

Concerned about accelerating mass extinction in 2100, and subsequently?  Read this to find out how maximising biogas production now is an essential tool towards the decarbonization of Europe. By decarbonising quickly the benefits accrue over the years and provide much more benefit in reduced temperature rises, than by doing this later. Read the following Press […]

CCC Net Zero Report by 2050 ADBA Responds with Support

In the “CCC Net Zero Report“, the IPCC says global greenhouse gas emissions need to reach “net zero” around 2050. To achieve the net-zero target tens of billions of pounds will need to be invested in renewable energy, electric vehicles, capturing and storing carbon emissions, and planting trees, according to the CCC. Currently the UK […]
