The Anaerobic Digestion Certification Scheme (ADCS) is an industry-led initiative designed to raise standards and recognise good practice in the running of anaerobic digestion (AD) plants, and is managed by the Anaerobic Digestion and Bioresources Association (ADBA), the UK’s trade body for anaerobic digestion. Certification of Bishop’s Cleeve follows the same ADBA accreditation awarded to our second site, Holsworthy in Devon, earlier this year and means that we’re the first operator to have multiple certified plants.
“Naturally we’re delighted that our sites are the only two in the UK to have been recognised by this prestigious scheme this year, and I am extremely proud of our on-site compliance team and all members of staff at both Bishop’s Cleeve and Holsworthy whose high standards of management and professionalism enable us to deliver safe and sustainable practices each and every day,” commented Mike Lowe, Operations Director.
Sam Hinton, Technical Support Manager at ADBA said: "It is excellent to see Andigestion continuing to demonstrate their commitment to operational excellence and professionalism in the AD industry.
“They will reap obvious benefits from the recognition - not only improved performance and productivity, whilst adhering to high environmental, health and safety standards, but also confidence from their employees, customers, regulators, insurance companies and neighbours. During the on-site audit it was obvious to see Andigestion are leading the way in showing other operators how to conduct business during these uncertain times and we were especially impressed with the response to addressing the auditors recommendations to ensure certification and best practice.”
