ADBA’s flagship event returns, PHYSICALLY, on December 14, 2021.
The government is subsidising gas companies to keep the lights on and fertiliser companies to produce CO2 to keep food on the shelves. AD and biogas could deliver both while also delivering on the UK’s recent commitment to the EU-US Methane Pledge, which seeks to deliver a 30% cut in methane emissions by 2030.
That makes this year’s ADBA National Conference pivotal, addressing the barriers to growth of the AD industry.
December 2021 key themes include:
- COP 26 Debrief – An update on the outcomes of COP26 and implications for AD and biogas.
- Next steps – How will industry respond to the changing outlook post-COP and in light of the methane pact?
- How bio-CO2 can boost your revenues – Carbon capture and utilisation is the gateway to net zero, delivering negative emissions from AD. And as has been seen recently, delivers much-needed security for the food and drinks manufacturing industry. This session will consider the practicalities of entering the market for bio-CO2.
- Town Hall primer on food waste – Local authorities will be structuring contracts now to deliver separate food waste collections from 2023 onwards. This expert panel will consider strategies and case studies to put AD in the vanguard of solutions.
- Navigating the red tape on digestate – Where is the needle pointing in the haystack of farming regulations, covering low-emissions spreading, removal of plastics, storage requirements, NVZs and likely PVZs (to name a few)?
- Transport campaign – The tail-pipe takedown of biomethane as transport fuel.
- Keynote speakers to be announced.
The programme will be updated very soon.
