Rewarding excellence at AD industry awards


Congratulating the UK AD & Biogas Industry Award winners on their success, and the whole of the AD industry for striving to achieve high standards, Charlotte Morton, Chief Executive, ADBA, said:

After another year of strong growth in the AD sector, it’s great to be able to recognise a small number of the projects already generating renewable energy, biofertilisers and jobs through the UK AD & Biogas Industry Awards. Highlighting the ingenuity, innovation and achievements of our sector not only rewards the winners, but showcases the exciting place that AD is taking in the circular economy, across a huge range of sectors.


We’ve had entries and winners from projects of all scales and sizes across farming, the food industry, water companies, local authorities and more, and the judges had an enormously difficult job in choosing the winners. Congratulations to all of them.

Steve Emington, Editor, letsrecycle, and member of the judging panel said:

At a time of rapid growth and expansion in the sector, it’s great to see so many high quality projects coming through, serving as examples to the rest of the industry.
