The Anaerobic Digestion and Biogas Association (ADBA) has announced a partnership with Foodex, a major show for the food manufacturing, processing and logistics sector.
Visitors to the show later this month will see a special AD and Biogas Zone showcasing builders, equipment suppliers and service providers. There will also daily seminar sessions with information on AD, opportunities for the food industry and case studies of businesses already using the technology.
ADBA’s Chief Executive Charlotte Morton said: “AD is an exciting prospect for the food manufacturing, processing and logistics sector. Not only can it reduce waste treatment costs for businesses and the carbon footprint but it can also transform waste streams into valuable assets.
“This is a dynamic industry with huge growth potential and companies entering the market all the time. Tamar is an excellent example, launched last month with the financial banking of The Prince of Wales and Sainsbury’s.
“They are clearly helping to raise the profile and benefits of AD among food processors and manufacturers, with Sainsbury’s committing to help its suppliers send their food waste to AD.”
Foodex will run from 25-27 March at the NEC near Birmingham.
