ADBA would like to extend an invitation to members to join them on 11th December, in London, at their flagship event, ADBA National Conference.
With all major parties now committed to Net Zero, this event, the day before the general election is timed perfectly to be a turning point in raising awareness of AD's potential among decision makers, movers and shakers and in securing the policy and financial support that it needs to flourish.
This year's conference will mark 10 years of ADBA and 10 years before the UK government must reduce emissions by 57%. If this is delivered, the UK will be on track to meet its 2050 commitment: “net zero” greenhouse gases by 2050.
Whilst we're very proud of the industry's achievements over the last 10 years, there is still an awful lot more that AD and biogas can contribute to society, particularly in the context of the climate emergency.
We believe that the UK AD industry can reduce the UK's greenhouse gases emissions by 5% annually by 2030. But it is urgent that we act now and we are therefore delighted to welcome Chris Stark, CEO, UK Committee on Climate Change (CCC), Hilary Tanner, Policy Advisor, Local Government Association (LGA) and Stuart Roberts, Vice President, National Farmers Union (NFU) to our conference.
One session that might be of particular interest to you is Hilary Tanner's keynote discussion on the LGA's views on the implementation of mandatory separate food waste collections. The Resource and Waste Strategy sets out that AD is the optimal treatment method for food waste, Hilary will explore how biogas and biomethane can be utilised by local authorities.
This event will position you to get ahead of the game with the introduction of separate food waste collections by 2023.
We are offering special delegate pricing for LARAC members. I hope you will take advantage of this offer and join us on the day.
