Biogas events postponed
THE World Biogas Association (WBA), organiser of the World Biogas Summit and of the World Biogas Expo in partnership with the UK Anaerobic Digestion and Bioresources Association (ADBA), has announced the postponement of these events from March 2nd-3rd to June 15th-16th 2022.
Held annually, the World Biogas Summit offers thought-leadership and insights into the anaerobic digestion and biogas industry’s potential to deliver the circular economy of organic wastes, delivering 50% of the Global Methane Pledge and a 10% cut in global greenhouse gas emissions by 2030. The theme of the 2022 event will be “the methane imperative”.
The change of date is because of the significant increase in Omicron infections globally and the World Health Organisation’s expectation that this will continue during the early part of 2022.
The AD and Biogas Industry Awards Ceremony, co-hosted by WBA and ADBA, has also been re-scheduled to the evening of 15th June at the Vox Conference Centre in Birmingham. As a result of the postponement, the entry deadline for the Awards has also been extended to 18th February.
WBA Chief Executive, Charlotte Morton, said: “After extensive consultation with our stakeholders, it was decided to postpone hosting the physical World Biogas Summit, World Biogas Expo and AD and Biogas Industry Awards Ceremony to mid- June, by which time we hope the situation with Omicron will have dramatically improved. This will ensure that our attendees travelling from all over the word can enjoy the best possible experience at the live conference, trade show and gala dinner. We look forward to engaging with them face to face for the first time in two long years.”
