Originally launched by ADBA in 2010 for the UK market, the Awards became international in 2017 with WBA joining as co-organiser and are increasingly seeing participation from overseas companies and projects as a result.

We're delighted to see finalists from Israel, Malaysia, Kenya and Thailand and South America alongside those from Europe and the UK in this year's shortlist“, said Charlotte Morton, ADBA Chief Executive.  “This is a testimony of the global growth of the biogas industry and we know there are many more projects and initiatives out there that deserve recognition.  Thank you to all those who entered this year's competition and let's keep shouting about the great benefits that the AD technology offers around the world.
