Every year, the Awards celebrate excellence and innovation in the global anaerobic digestion (AD) and biogas sector, and this year's winners and highly commended across 12 categories illustrated the increasingly international nature of the competition – with the successful entries ranging from the UK, Germany, Italy and France to Norway, India and Thailand.

Congratulations to all this year's winners for their success“,

said Charlotte Morton, ADBA Chief Executive.

They come from far and wide and perfectly represent the global growth of our industry and its dynamism in all aspects of the industry.  Many highly commended entries also illustrate the increasingly high standards by which AD and biogas professionals operate.  Commiserations to our other finalists but they can also stand proud of their achievements and we urge them to continue their great work in delivering the huge benefits our industry can bring to society.”

“I'd like to also take this opportunity to thank our panel of judges for their wise choices and our sponsors, SGN and SHV Energy for their support”,

she concluded.

“We're looking forward to next year's event – hopefully when we can all safety gather together to celebrate.”

Judge Dr Keith Simons, Principal Scientist at SHV Energy, added:

Congratulations to the finalists and winners. The excellence of all the entries reflects positively on a robust sector which is not only improving on the basics, such as safety and stable operation, but also developing viable solutions for traditionally unmet challenges through new innovations. More so than in previous years, the strength of this robustness shone through in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. This really does provide confidence in the future.
