Shortlist announced for global green gas awards 2018

The awards shortlist includes green gas projects from Sweden, the Netherlands, Belgium, India, and Hong Kong, as well as entries from across the UK. This year’s ceremony will see the presentation of 16 different awards, including awards for ‘AD Rising Star’, ‘AD Hero of the Year’, and ‘AD Team of the Year’.

The black-tie awards ceremony will be hosted by Charlotte Smith, presenter of Radio 4’s ‘Farming Today’ programme and will take place on the first night of UK AD & World Biogas Expo 2018, the world’s largest dedicated global biogas expo, which takes place on the 11th-12th July at the NEC in Birmingham.

The expo and awards ceremony are being jointly organised by the UK Anaerobic Digestion & Bioresources Association (ADBA) and the World Biogas Association (WBA).

“The strength of the shortlisted projects for this year’s AD & Biogas Industry Awards is testament to the innovation and ingenuity of the green gas industry, which offers so much in terms of climate change mitigation, food and energy security, support for rural communities, and improvements to air quality” said Charlotte Morton, Chief Executive of ADBA. “I’m looking forward to celebrating the best of the best in biogas at the awards ceremony, which will be the perfect accompaniment to UK AD & World Biogas Expo 2018.”

David Newman, President of the WBA, added that it’s great to see such inspiring examples of biogas use from around the world in this year’s awards shortlist. The AD & Biogas Industry Awards Ceremony 2018 will recognise those who make an exceptional contribution to the growth of biogas globally, it promises to be a close-fought contest!

Dr Jonathan Scurlock, Chief Adviser for Renewable Energy & Climate Change at the National Farmers’ Union (NFU) and member of the AD & Biogas Industry Awards 2018 Judging Panel, said that the NFU is delighted to be involved again this year and that the awards “demonstrate the progress and commitment of this important renewable energy business sector to decarbonising Britain and adding value to both agriculture and waste management”, signposting the way to a totally net-zero carbon economy in the future.

The global green gas industry has the potential to be worth as much as £1 trillion and is making a key contribution to achieving nine of the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals through delivering benefits such as greenhouse gas emissions reduction, waste management, improved air quality, and restoring degraded soils.

Biogas (or ‘green gas’) is produced through anaerobic digestion (AD), a natural process that coverts organic wastes and purpose-grown crops into renewable heat and power, clean transport fuel, and nutrient-rich digestate biofertiliser.
