Government policy

Joined-up policy across government is vital if the industry is to realise its potential and deliver significant benefits in terms of waste management, energy, transport, air quality, climate change and farming. A mature sector can generate 75 TWh of renewable energy (nearly 30% of the UK’s household gas demand), improve our energy and food security, reduce climate change emissions, recycle valuable nutrients, as well as creating 35,000 jobs and gas worth £2-3 billion a year.

The main policies and regulations which apply to AD plants can be found in the left hand menu. For more about how ADBA works with government on policy development and the future of regulation, see our who we are page.
