After such a turbulent year it is unsurprising that progress in the AD industry has, like most other sectors, been hampered by the ongoing Covid-19 global pandemic. Many developments have faced delays in construction and commissioning, and many operational facilities have underperformed due to feedstock constraints – a consequence of the retail and hospitality sectors being closed for a large part of the year. However, following modest growth across the AD industry in 2019/20, we have seen a significant number of new developments commissioned over the past 12 months, which have benefitted from various extensions offered by Government. 

NNFCC monitors anaerobic digestion activity and has published the eighth annual report on anaerobic digestion deployment in the UK. The report provides a comprehensive regional breakdown of sector development in Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and the 9 regions of England, providing detailed information on feedstock requirements, installed capacity and output type (combined heat & power or biomethane-to-grid) for every project.

The report is available for purchase for £995 + VAT, or is included with an Anaerobic Digestion Business Subscription, which also includes consultancy support to help recipients further understand the market, identify development opportunities, or expand their knowledge of the sector more generally.
