At a global level, anaerobic digestion in farming can deliver the benefits of a rural economy, food security and environmental protection. At an individual level, on-farm AD can diversify income streams through energy export and selling digestate. Long-term, AD can reduce farm operational costs and improve productivity.

The first day of the World Biogas Expo will feature a dedicated breakfast for on-farm AD plant operators, farmers interested in the benefits of anaerobic digestion as well as relevant stakeholders. The purpose is to bring the farming and AD communities together to build strong partnerships on the pathway to decarbonising the UK’s agricultural sector. There is no cost to attend the expo and breakfast. You’ll see presentations from the Anaerobic Digestion and Bioresources Association (ADBA), National Farmers’ Union, a research institution, industry-leaders and others.
