The Anaerobic Digestion and Biogas Association (ADBA), the trade body representing organisations involved in anaerobic digestion in UK, will be hosting its second UK Biomethane and Gas Vehicle Conference on 9 September 2014 at the Northampton Guildhall.
As the trade body for the UK’s AD and biogas sector, ADBA is producing this event in line with its strategic vision to realise the full potential of biomethane as a transport fuel.
The event will bring together industry professionals from AD, transport and fuel infrastructure and logistics, in order to discuss the changes necessary to achieve the goal of a clearly profitable and affordable route to market. Attendees can hear from experts on the environmental benefits of biomethane, refuelling infrastructure, vehicle manufacturers and regulatory framework developments, as well as insights and debates on overcoming current barriers affecting the supply chain.
Delegates will be able to hear answers to key questions such as ‘what is the current and future availability of biomethane and how can biomethane producers achieve the best value from their product?’ from expert speakers including Andrew Colski, Head of Freight Policy – DfT, John Bickerton, Chief Engineer – Reading Buses, Nick Blake, Head of Engineering – Mercedes-Benz UK Ltd, Mark Fletcher, Sustainability Manager – Logistics – Sainsbury’s Supermarkets Ltd and Mark Daly, Sustainable Development Project Manager – Sheffield City Council. This year’s topics include logistics and freight, improving urban air quality, vehicles and infrastructure: what are the options? and driving the sector: key barriers to tackle.
ADBA was established in 2009 as a not-for-profit organisation representing businesses in the anaerobic digestion sector, to help remove the barriers to growth currently faced by the industry and to promote the benefits of AD to the UK. We want to realise the potential of the AD industry, and allow this sector to deliver energy security and economic growth – in waste management, farming, transport and food processing, among others – while also combating climate change.
ADBA wants to ensure we can deliver all the benefits of AD. We work with industry, government, NGOs, media, professional bodies, the public, and our members to promote and develop AD, and to tackle AD issues across the UK. We particularly draw on the expertise of our members to allow us to deal with the latest issues, and anticipate and act on any potential problems or opportunities, before feeding directly into the policy-making process.
