GROWING THE GLOBAL AD MARKET


The world’s biogas community descended on the UK this July for the first ever global AD and biogas trade show. UK AD & Biogas 2016 surpassed all expectations, attracting over 3,600 international visitors who enjoyed touring a packed exhibition hall filled with the latest equipment and technological innovations, listening to expert speakers, finding out the latest AD research, and learning about the most exciting biogas projects happening around the world right now.


The show also incorporated the AD & Biogas Industry Awards, open to international companies for the first time ever. The shortlisted entrants clearly demonstrated just how much growth there has been in the AD and biogas industry over the past few years. AD plants across the globe, at all different scales and treating a variety of different feedstocks, are not only generating crucial green energy and producing a valuable biofertiliser, they’re also addressing some of the most important issues facing our population today – waste management, soil infertility, climate change and lack of sanitation, to name but a few.


With so much to be gained, it’s no surprise to learn of the increases in global AD production, and also of the potential for still greater growth in territories such as the US, South Korea and South Africa. As our International Market Report highlights (see p8), there are regions ripe for further development, and those companies operating at the highest levels of health and safety, best practice and innovation will be first in line to maximise these opportunities.


As well as our International Market Report, we at ADBA are supporting the continued growth of a robust and safe AD industry, not just in the UK but right around the world. Our Best Practice Scheme is setting the standard for safe AD operation and we have already been approached to adapt it to work in other countries. We are also continuing to collaborate with other international trade associations so that next year’s UK AD & Biogas trade show will feature a host of pavilions from different countries, showcasing the best of AD and biogas innovation from across the globe. Make sure your company is part of the global biogas revolution by booking your space today. See p6 or go to adbioresources.org
