The report by the York-based firm has revealed that this environmentally-friendly way of creating fuel and fertiliser has "experienced rapid growth in recent years" and that "this is set to continue for years to come."
It reveals that - outside of the sewage treatment sector - there are now more than 130 operational anaerobic digestion plants in the UK with more than 340 projects currently under development.
This statistic includes plants that are fed on vegetable outgrades and other food waste which is processed into fuel and digestate.
The increase reflects the Government's desire to see more anaerobic digestion plants developed in the UK.
Three years ago Defra launched an anaerobic digestion action plan to encourage investment in the technology and educate people on its benefits.
