The event will bring together the UK AD and biogas community to explore how the industry can be optimised to reduce emissions through the 2020s to help the government meet its Carbon Budgets. AD has significant potential to reduce emissions from heat and transport, whilst simultaneously supporting UK farmers and providing a management solution for food waste. The conference will address the most pressing issues in the AD sector, including support for renewable heat, post-Brexit on-farm AD, ADBA's AD plant certification scheme, gas-grid injection, food waste collections, and biomethane for transport.
Keynote presentations will include Lord Deben, Chair of the Committee on Climate Change, and Professor Ian Boyd, Chief Scientific Adviser at the Department of Environment, Food & Rural Affairs.
The packed programme commences with registration and networking followed by welcome and introductions by ADBA Chief Executive Charlotte Morton.
