About the ADCS
The AD Certification Scheme (ADCS) is the only certification scheme in the UK that assesses the all-round safety, environmental and operational performance of anaerobic digestion (AD) plants. It is a key element of the Anaerobic Digestion and Bioresources Association’s (ADBA) Best Practice Programme, which encompasses all our work on improving standards in the industry. The Scheme provides an independent audit process and report, which is a useful tool for operators to ensure they are meeting required standards and identify how they can improve. Developed by ADBA with extensive engagement with industry stakeholders, it aims to support the industry to be a mature and thriving sector that delivers consistently excellent projects.
