WBA to partner with UK AD & Biogas show
The World Biogas Association (WBA) has agreed to partner with the Anaerobic Digestion and Bioresources Association (ADBA) to showcase the global biogas industry at ADBA’s leading AD & Biogas trade show, which last year was attended by participants from over 50 countries.
UK AD & Biogas and World Biogas Expo 2017 will take place on the 5-6 July at the NEC in Birmingham, UK. This will be the show’s seventh consecutive year.
The WBA, founded in 2016 at COP22 in Marrakesh to promote and facilitate the growth of the global biogas industry, will develop the global element of the show. Located in the same hall as UK AD & Biogas, World Biogas Expo 2017 will have its own dedicated space, international pavilions and conference area. UK AD & Biogas 2017 will retain its focus on the UK market.
Exhibitors throughout the combined event will be showcasing all the products and services required to build the range of plants needed across all sectors, including agriculture, sewage treatment, waste management, transport, heat and power, and for the first time separate food waste collection infrastructure, landfill gas and biomethane vehicles.
Speaking about the show, ADBA chief executive Charlotte Morton said: “Last year we expanded UK AD & Biogas to include opportunities for exhibitors and visitors in the most exciting growing global markets for AD and biogas, with delegations and visitors from over 50 countries.
“As the meeting point and hub of both the UK and global AD industries, this year’s expanded UK AD & Biogas and World Biogas Expo 2017 is the perfect place for AD professionals and others to share expertise and ideas and perhaps seal that sought-after business deal, with more business being done in the industry across these two days than in the rest of the year.
“The event will facilitate learning and best practice across existing UK and international markets and identify new opportunities where AD/biogas can solve significant problems across all sectors around the world. This will be the catalyst for ensuring that biogas’ immense potential is realised worldwide.”
WBA president David Newman added: “Biogas can help to solve so many global challenges, from reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 20% to meeting the UN Sustainable Development Goals and increasing energy security. I’d strongly encourage national governments to attend the event to see how they can incorporate AD into their plans and policies to help meet their needs.”
