World Biogas Association: supporting the growth of the global biogas industry

“Anaerobic Digestion and Biogas is evolving rapidly and by coming together as an industry we can drive the change needed to make this market thrive.  Our mission is clear: to raise the level of awareness about biogas technologies across the globe and encourage the uptake of these technologies as solutions to the challenges of our times.

Join us in realising this mission, and I look forward to meeting you in the near future.”

David Newman, President, World Biogas Association

President’s Message

WBA is a global association and our growth since our birth in late 2016 bears testimony to this. Companies have joined from Japan, Latin America, Africa and Asia, alongside of course Europe and North America, and this clearly demonstrates WBA’s worldwide outreach. By bringing their experiences together, WBA is able to provide strong support towards the global development of the biogas industry.
