ADBA hosts UK AD & Biogas 2010 - The UK's first Anaerobic Digestion and Biogas Trade Show
16 June 2010, News release from The Anaerobic Digestion and Biogas Association (ADBA)
UK AD & Biogas 2010 is the first ever trade show in the UK focusing solely on anaerobic digestion and biogas and will open its doors on 7-8 July this year at the NEC in Birmingham.
Hosted by The Anaerobic Digestion and Biogas Association (ADBA), this two day event offers a packed programme of free seminars and workshops, case studies and a high-profile two day conference, 'The Future of the AD Industry in the UK'.
With the new Coalition Government committing to a 'huge increase in energy from waste through anaerobic digestion' in the Coalition Agreement, the industry is set for radical growth. To meet the UK's renewable energy targets, two plants need to be commissioned every week for the next 10 years.
Lord Redesdale, ADBA's chairman, says: 'Without AD, the Government will fail to meet its waste directive, renewable energy and climate change targets.'
Biogas will be important to the UK because by 2015 it is projected that we will be importing over 80% of our gas. It is vital for the UK's energy security that as much imported gas as possible is replaced by biogas generated here.
AD provides the UK with the unique opportunity to create its own green gas supply, also helping to meet its renewable energy targets, reducing carbon emissions and creating new job opportunities. ADBA has calculated that up to 20% of Britain's domestic gas could come from biogas produced through AD.
With all this in mind, UK AD & Biogas 2010 is set to provide a platform for everyone interested in learning more about AD and biogas, as well as professionals involved in the waste, renewable energy, water and farming industries.
Alongside the exhibition ADBA hosts a high-profile conference, 'The Future of the AD Industry in the UK'. This two day conference will include many expert speakers discussing the future direction the AD industry is and should be heading towards.
Issues ranging from feedstocks, the best use of biogas, gas to grid injection, biofuels, finance and many more will be discussed by speakers ranging from Government ministers, Lord Oxburgh, British Gas, WRAP, Severn Trent Water, Ofgem, Lloyds Banking Group to Sita, the EA and The Cooperative Bank.
