A survey of the UK Anaerobic Digestion industry in 2013
The purpose of this study was to quantify the processing of organic material via anaerobic digestion (AD) in the UK using a survey of AD operators. This report summarises the methodology employed and the results obtained from the survey.
WRAP and other public bodies require information and monitoring data on the UK organics treatment sector to assist in directing support resources and informing policy. WRAP also uses the results to help assess the extent to which it is meeting its objectives with respect to developing both AD capacity and markets for AD outputs.
The survey also provides important technical information on aspects such as the equipment used by the industry, which is of use to the industry in developing new projects. Investors also find it useful to be able to see from a confidential survey how the industry is developing, so this survey also supports investor confidence in the sector.
