UK’s ‘Building Our Industrial Strategy’ Green Paper supports central role for Anaerobic Digestion: trade group

January 29, 2017 |

In the UK, the national government has published a Green Paper on ‘Building Our Industrial Strategy’ and the Anaerobic Digestion and Bioresources Association said it will be setting out over the next few months how AD can play a central role in helping UK industry to flourish. The Association said that “In return for long-term Government support, AD can contribute a fantastic return on investment”, including “lots of local manufacturing jobs in science, technology, engineering and mathematics”, as well as a reduction in imports, and progress towards UK climate-change targets.

“We welcome the Government’s Green Paper,” said ADBA Chief Executive Charlotte Morton, “and in particular the focus on investing in science, research and innovation, which is key to unlocking the full potential of the biogas industry worldwide. We estimate that a government investment of £50m over 5-7 years in a Centre for Anaerobic Biotechnology and Bioresources Research would provide the initiative to deliver a step change in the rate of development of anaerobic biotechnology, putting the UK at the heart of this £1 trillion global industry.”
