The World Biogas Expo is co-organised annually at the NEC Birmingham, United Kingdom by the Anaerobic Digestion and Bioresources Association (ADBA) and the World Biogas Association (WBA), and its origins date back to 2010. Today, it is the leading global biogas trade show of its kind, with representation from the UK and over a hundred countries. It features dozens of guest speakers, over a hundred exhibition stands, and thousands of delegates – all at the cutting-edge of biogas. The World Biogas Expo is co-located with The World Biogas Summit (hosted by WBA) and the AD and Biogas Industry Awards Ceremony (co-organised by ADBA and WBA).

Delegates come to:

  • Understand best practice models
  • Learn the policy opportunities and challenges in other countries
  • Network with their peers, prospects and customers
  • Scope the market for the best advice, products and services
  • Keep abreast of the latest biogas optimisation technologies

97% of visitors recommend attending our trade show.

The Anaerobic Digestion and Bioresources Association (ADBA) was established in September 2009 to represent the UK anaerobic digestion (AD) and bioresources industry and to support the development of a safe, high-performing industry. Today we represent over 300 organisations, spanning AD operators, equipment suppliers, finance specialists, farmers, academics, waste management companies, gas distribution networks and more specialisms. Through lobbying activities, meetings with government officials, working groups, high profile industry events, educational material and more, ADBA aims to facilitate the AD industry’s growth.

The World Biogas Association (WBA) was founded in 2016 as the global trade association for the biogas, landfill gas and anaerobic digestion (AD) sectors, dedicated to facilitating the adoption of biogas globally. We believe that the global adoption of biogas technologies is a multi-faceted opportunity to produce clean, renewable energy while resolving global issues related to development, public health and economic growth. We seek to represent all organisations working in the biogas industry at the international level across the world, including; national associations, biogas operators and developers, equipment providers, water companies, the agricultural sector, waste companies, and academic & research institutions.
