AD awards acknowledge industry innovators
The recent AD & Biogas Industry Awards Ceremony 2018, hosted by the UK Anaerobic Digestion & Bioresources Association (ADBA), and the World Biogas Association (WBA), saw 16 companies acknowledged for innovations in the AD sector.
Awards were presented at a black tie event at the end of the first day of the UK AD & World Biogas Expo 2018 in Birmingham.
Among the awards were Best Food Waste Supply Chain Project (won by FareShare for its ‘No Good Food Should Go To Waste’ project’) and Best Innovation in Biomethane (won by SGN, Portsdown Hill for The Remote Grid Entry Hub).
Other winners included SIAT, which won Best International Agricultural Plant for its large scale AD and biogas plants in West Africa, and Thomas Minter from Malaby Biogas, who won AD Hero of the year.
“This ceremony was a fantastic opportunity to celebrate the very best in AD and biogas in the UK and beyond,” said Charlotte Morton, chief executive of ADBA.
“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.”
