AD industry pays tribute to late Hugh Vaughan at awards dinner

The anaerobic digestion (AD) industry celebrated the life of AD pioneer Hugh Vaughan at its annual AD & Biogas and Industry Awards last night (Wednesday 5 July).

Hugh Vaughan, who was UK director at pump and mixer manufacturer Landia, tragically passed away earlier this year with his wife in a road accident whilst on holiday in Mauritius. Hugh had been at Landia UK since its formation in 1994 and had been one of the founder directors of the Anaerobic Digestion & Bioresources Association (ADBA), which jointly organised the awards dinner with the World Biogas Association (WBA).

Hugh was posthumously awarded a special ‘Contribution to the UK AD Industry’ award at the ceremony.

ADBA chief executive paid tribute to Hugh at the ceremony: “Hugh leaves behind a legacy that we must all work hard to continue to fight for. Hugh remained one of ADBA’s most passionate advocates and left us a mission: to continue to grow the UK and global AD industry, and this is how we can best honour his memory.”

The black-tie awards dinner took place at the end of the first day of global biogas tradeshow UK AD & Biogas and World Biogas Expo 2017. The awards were presented by Charlotte Smith, presenter of BBC Radio 4’s Farming Today and regular contributor to BBC1’s Countryfile.
