November 22, 2018
By World Biogas Summit
Nov. 22, 2018 - A new World Biogas Summit will put anaerobic digestion (AD) and biogas at the heart of sustainable development and high on the agenda of politicians and policymakers in the UK and around the globe, according to joint organisers the World Biogas Association (WBA) and the UK Anaerobic Digestion & Bioresources Association (ADBA).
Taking place in Birmingham, UK on July 3-4, 2019, the summit will feature keynote presentations, panel discussions, and case studies involving leaders and expert speakers from the field of sustainable development. Up to 500 delegates are expected to attend from governments, municipalities, industry, academia, and international organisations from the UK and around the world. The summit will take place alongside UK AD & World Biogas Expo 2019, the largest international tradeshow dedicated to AD and biogas.
Discussions at the summit will centre around the industry’s contribution to tackling climate change and meeting the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs) across waste management, energy, transport, agriculture, air and water quality, and soil health, as well as how to stimulate the growth of the industry through policy, finance, technological innovation, and public engagement.
AD and biogas technologies convert organic wastes and purpose-grown crops into renewable heat and power, clean transport fuel, and nutrient-rich natural fertiliser. It is estimated that they can reduce global greenhouse gas emissions by as much as 20% worldwide, as well as meeting a range of sustainable development policy goals.
