Industry bodies welcome Government plans for AD

Industry bodies have welcomed the recent publication of the Government’s anaerobic digestion framework document.

The Renewable Energy Association (REA) was particularly pleased with the document’s emphasis on biogas, which it believes shows the Government’s commitment. Chief executive Gaynor Hartnell said:“This document signals that Government is serious about bringing forward a significant and varied contribution from biogas.  It is the perfect win-win technology, reducing the costs of waste disposal, developing the rural economy, delivering renewable energy in a variety of forms and replacing carbon-intensive mineral fertiliser. 

“We look forward to working with Defra and we expect many of the REA’s 650 member companies will populate the various working groups.”

The Anaerobic Digestion and Biogas Association (ADBA) was pleased the Government wants to form a steering group made up from Government departments and industry individuals.

ADBA chief executive Charlotte Morton said: “It is clear from the framework document that DECC and Defra will need the support and expertise of industry to deliver the huge increase. ADBA looks forward to helping to provide many of the solutions the document highlights.”
