NFU Deputy President Tom Bradshaw is the keynote speaker at the World Biogas Expo, which takes place 15-16 June at the NEC, Birmingham.

Biogas will play a key part in achieving the NFU's ambition for net zero in farming by 2040. The demand for more green gas in the UK grid could see the creation of 100 biomethane plants.

This event focuses on the potential for AD (anaerobic digestion) development.

Tom will be delivering the 'Farms of the Future' keynote session at 11.30am on 15 June.

The event is free to attend. Register online at: World Biogas Expo 2022

Farmers Breakfast meeting

Tom will also be speaking at the 'Farmers Breakfast' meeting on 15 June, for on-farm AD plant operators, as well as farmers interested in the benefits of anaerobic digestion and other stakeholders.

This event is also free to attend. It takes place 8–9.30am before the exhibition opens.

Tom will be presenting alongside the Anaerobic Digestion and Bioresources Association (ADBA), a research institution, and other industry leaders.
