Planning & advice


  • Preliminary planning
  • Preliminary design
  • Approval planning
  • Detailed design
  • Analysis / assessment of intended waste
  • For waste with impurities Selection of processing technology>
  • Selection and dimensioning of process engineering
  • Energy and mass balances


  • Food waste
  • Waste from the food and feed industry
  • Biowaste (brown bin)


For assessing the fermentability of waste, we do not rely on simple tables. Rather, with the help of our BIOTIP software, we create a comprehensive simulation of the entire biogas process. This allows us to tell you at the beginning which waste composition in combination with which plant technology will enable stable biogas production and what the efficiency of the planned plant is.

At sensitive points in the field of process engineering, we offer you particularly robust technology from our own production, which has proved its worth over many years in operation (treatment technology, pumps, systems for contaminant discharge, systems for the hygienisation of material flows, measuring systems). and automation technology). More about our process and the individual modules can be found here.

In this way, we create the conditions for sustained reliable plant operation!
