The UK Anaerobic Digestion and Bioresources Association (ADBA) has welcomed the publication of the Scottish Government’s plans to achieve net-zero carbon emissions.
The programme of action for 2019-2020 puts emphasis on addressing climate change and achieving net zero targets by 2045 through various policies, including decarbonising transport and heat.
Scotland has been at the forefront of the drive to reduce and recycle food waste into bioenergy and biofertilisers. It’s estimated that around 56% of Scottish households now have access to separate food waste collections.
Charlotte Morton, ADBA’s chief executive, said: “Once again, Scotland is demonstrating its commitment to addressing climate change and leadership in putting policies in place to stimulate the development of a sustainable green economy.
“We have been working for many years with Zero Waste Scotland and have a very productive relationship with this nation. We look forward to supporting their efforts in achieving their net zero objective.”
