ADBA have open access to their Best Practice Scheme (BPS). These checklists on Risk Management, Procurement and Operational Performance encourage operators to ask the right questions as part of their procurement processes. See: http://adbioresources.org/our-work/best-practice-scheme/best-practice-checklists/. For more information on this, as well as a great line-up of industry speakers, register to attend the ADBA National Conference.
This award is one of a number of awards which will be presented at the UK AD Biogas trade show gala dinner on 5 July 2017. This award will be given to any person, team, company, business, university or other entity which has carried out a research project in the last 12 months which has made a significant contribution to the AD industry.

Leaders across the anaerobic digestion industry met earlier this month for the fourth annual UK AD & Biogas Industry Awards held at the Birmingham NEC.
Angela Bywater, Network co-Manager of the BBSRC-funded Anaerobic Digestion was amongst those recognised for their contribution to the industry, receiving an ADBA Industry Ambassador Award for her work in championing the AD industry’s interests and, in particular, the value of research and development.
ADBA Chief Executive Charlotte Morton said “There has been a lot of exceptional hard work by dedicated professionals over the past five years, all aimed at scaling our industry. Today the AD industry boasts 400 biogas plants, which together deliver an electrical equivalent capacity of almost 480 megawatts – equivalent to the capacity of one of the nuclear power plants, Wyfla, which is being decommissioned this year.“ She added that, with these awards, “We’re honoured to recognise the greatest contributors to those sector triumphs that have developed AD as an established, proven technology.”
The Anaerobic Digestion Network is one of 13 BBSRC funded Networks in Industrial Biotechnology and Bioenergy and is led by Professor Charles Banks of the University of Southampton and Professor Orkun Soyer from the University of Warwick. The AD Network provides research funding accessible to business and academia, as well as running low cost/free networking and information dissemination events for anyone interested in innovation and research in the field of Anaerobic Digestion. Membership is free to all. More information can be found at www.anaerobicdigestionnet.com/.
The Anaerobic Digestion and Bioresources Association’s annual trade show takes place on 1-2 July 15 at the Birmingham NEC. The R&D Hub at the show was extremely successful last year and is destined to be even better this year. This is one of the main annual tradeshows in the AD calendar and is well worth a visit. Come along and find out about cutting edge research in the field of anaerobic digestion and how the Anaerobic Digestion Network can help you.
