ADBA wants to ensure we can deliver all the benefits of AD. We work with industry, government, NGOs, media, professional bodies, the public, and our members to promote and develop AD, and to tackle AD issues across the UK. We particularly draw on the expertise of our members to allow us to deal with the latest issues, and anticipate and act on any potential problems or opportunities, before feeding directly into the policy-making process.

Our key areas where we work to support and grow AD include:

Demonstrating AD’s value:
ADBA acts as a resource centre for all information relevant to the industry, ensuring politicians, the public and other key stakeholders understand and recognise the benefits AD can deliver.

Lobbying government:
ADBA works hard to shape government policy through working groups regularly attended by government agencies, such as the Environmental Agency, WRAP and the Health and Safety Executive, by highlighting issues, feeding into consultation responses, and helping to develop the industry through dialogue with government.

Building the marketplace:
ADBA brings together the AD community, joining the key stakeholders in one association so they can trade, discuss and analyse the latest developments, and develop the practical tools to enable the industry to grow. We run trade shows, conferences and research and development forums, and offer vital industry tools, including AD Guides and Best Practice documents, with our unique experience and authority


ADBA is the vital link between government and the anaerobic digestion and biogas industry. We provide our members with a powerful lobbying voice, along with the support and access to markets needed to develop and grow their businesses in AD. Through our expert team, our diverse membership, and our range of services addressing the political, regulatory, technical and commercial aspects of the industry, ADBA has the ability to shape the AD industry in the UK, and to improve the bottom line of all our members.
