AD Potential Highlighted In Green GB Week


Green GB Week, an initiative launched by the government in the UK to celebrate clean growth and how it’s providing opportunities within the country’s economy, got underway on 15 October.

Over the course of the week, it will be looking at how individuals, as well as businesses, can contribute to the country’s clean growth.

The Anaerobic Digestion and Bioresources Association (ADBA) has taken this opportunity to showcase how anaerobic digestion (AD) is contributing to the UK’s greenhouse gas reduction.

According to the organisation, AD has the potential to reduce greenhouse gas emissions around the world by 20 per cent, as well as providing other benefits including food security, soil restoration and energy security.

Charlotte Morton, ADBA chief executive, revealed that AD is already helping to reduce the country’s greenhouse gas emissions by one per cent every year, with the potential to increase this to five per cent.

This is achieved “by recycling organic wastes and displacing fossil-fuel-derived energy sources, transport fuel and fertilisers”, she explained.

“Green gas has a central role to play in the low-carbon economy and can help to create a truly green Great Britain where the concept of ‘waste’ becomes a thing of the past,” Ms Morton asserted.

She also pointed out that the UK is one of the world leaders when it comes to AD technology, and urged the government to provide further support to the industry to ensure that this remains the case.
