The UK’s biggest dedicated anaerobic digestion (AD) and biogas event, UK AD & Biogas, will focus heavily on the farming sector when it takes place at the NEC, Birmingham on July 3/4.
Organised by the Anaerobic Digestion & Biogas Association (ADBA), the show will recognise the huge heat and power potential of farm feedstocks. It’s estimated that 13.5 million megawatts of renewable energy could be delivered each year by farm-based AD plants.
The deputy president of the CLA, Henry Robinson, said he hoped that efforts to raise the profile of AD on farms would drive uptake.
“The benefits of AD to farming are so great in terms of slurry storage and methane mitigation, as well as renewable energy generation, it would be madness for anyone building a plant to not attend this event,” he said. “All the answers to so many questions will all be available under one roof.”
Free to attend, the two-day trade show and conference has been designed to help farmers understand the business case for on-farm AD plants – which can generate energy from crops, farm and food wastes, cut emissions, reduce input costs and increase profits. Tailored presentations at the event will answer farmers’ questions relating to sourcing feedstock, financial support, technology procurement, plant management and how to make best use of the by-products of AD.
The event offers 240-plus exhibitors, 24 conference sessions, 22 seminars and workshops, and one-to-one professional farming, finance, feedstock, planning, permitting and legal advice clinics for visitors.
