Landia has become one of the founder members of The Anaerobic Digestion and Biogas Association (ADBA), the trade body for those involved in the design and build of Britain's biogas infrastructure.
Launched at the Dairy Event by Lord Redesdale, ADBA will look to help farmers raise finance for AD units, as well as lobbying Government for changes to legislation to make it easier to produce and sell biogas.
Landia is one of a group of companies - including Kirk Environmental, Monsal, UTS, A Consult, Entec, Clark Energy and Inenco - that through ADBA will work with farmers and energy companies to achieve its aim of seeing up to 1,000 UK biogas plants in place by 2015.
The total build cost of the plants will be around GBP5 billion, creating an industry employing over 20,000 people.
Lord Redesdale said: 'Anaerobic digestion and biogas are vital to Britain's energy needs.
By 2015 we will be importing 80 per cent of our gas from overseas, with a large part of that from Russia.
'We've already witnessed the problems that countries such as the Ukraine and Bulgaria have had with their energy supply, which raises serious questions about energy security.
He added: 'ADBA's work will ease the dependency on fossil fuel for the gas and electricity grid.
Joining Lord Redesdale on the ADBA Board of Directors are the Landia UK and Eire Director Hugh Vaughan, Kirk Environmental Managing Director, Gary Little and Monsal Technical Director Dorian Harrison.
