The most exciting innovations in anaerobic digestion (AD) and biogas were celebrated in style at the AD & Biogas Industry Awards Ceremony 2018.

16 different awards were presented to the companies and individuals who have made the greatest contribution to delivering the benefits of AD and biogas across the UK and around the world.

The ceremony was jointly organised by the UK Anaerobic Digestion & Bioresources Association (ADBA) and the World Biogas Association (WBA), and was held at the end of the first day of UK AD & World Biogas Expo 2018, the world's largest tradeshow dedicated solely to AD and biogas.

ADBA Chief Executive Charlotte Morton said:

�"his ceremony was a fantastic opportunity to celebrate the very best in AD and biogas in the UK and beyond. The UK AD industry has had a difficult few years but there are now some very bright lights at the end of the tunnel, so this was a perfect moment to celebrate triumph in the face of adversity and to look forward to an exciting new future for what is such an important industry for meeting the UK's climate targets and improving food and energy security."

WBA President David Newman said:

"It was great to see people travel from all four corners of the globe to recognise excellence in the development of biogas technologies worldwide. There's a huge amount we can learn from each other in terms of innovation and best practice, and the AD & Biogas Industry Awards gave us all the chance to hear about the most exciting projects in this growing global industry."

AD is a natural biological process that converts organic wastes and energy crops into renewable heat and power, clean transport fuel, and nutrient-rich biofertiliser. AD has the potential to reduce global greenhouse gas emissions by around 20% and can help to meet nine of the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals.
