The "crème de la crème" in the anaerobic digestion (AD) and biogas industry gathered at the AD & Biogas Industry Awards Ceremony 2019 in Birmingham, the UK on July 3, 2019, to celebrate those organisations and individuals who demonstrated outstanding commitment to innovation and excellence in support of the sector over the past year.

Jointly organised by the UK Anaerobic Digestion and Bioresources Association (ADBA) and the World Biogas Association (WBA), the 2019 Awards competition recognised companies and people from around the world across 14 categories – ranging from Clever Use of Outputs to Best R&D Innovation, Most Circular City, AD Hero of the Year and International Knowledge & Collaboration.

AD and biogas can make an unrivalled contribution to cutting global CO2 emissions and tackling the climate emergency. We only have a limited time left to stop damaging our planet and everyone in the sector has their part to play in this vital mission. To make a real difference, we need an industry that is innovative, safe and effective. Congratulations to tonight’s Awards winners and highly commended organisations and individuals. They are the proof, alongside all those who entered this year’s competition, that we can be a world-beating sector. Our thanks go to them all, said ADBA Chief Executive Charlotte Morton.

Over 400 guests attended the glittering black-tie gala dinner hosted by BBC Reporter and Eco-adventurer Andy Pag, who revealed the Winners and Highly-Commended entries.

This morning (July 3) we launched a major report on the global potential of biogas in addressing the environmental crisis and supporting the development of a sustainable circular economy. The people recognised tonight are at the forefront of our efforts to realise that potential. Their dedication, ingenuity, and commitment to excellence inspire us all to continue championing the benefits of our game-changing sector and to tirelessly engage with world governments and international policy makers, investors and influencers to ensure they provide our industry with the political, regulatory, financial and social framework it needs for growth. Congratulations to our worthy winners in leading the way, said David Newman, President, WBA.
