Biogas plants and biological waste treatment

Since founding of the institute, we are successfully implementing projects for the sustainable and efficient recycling of biological waste and we accompany the development of the industrial sector. We offer services in the context of biologicial waste treatment in Germany and international. These include, among others:

  • Feasibility studies,
  • Development of concepts,
  • Preplanning,
  • Authorization and tender procedures,
  • Economic efficiency studies,
  • Monitoring of construction and commissioning of technical equipment and plants,
  • Monitoring of performance run tests, data collection, evaluation and analysis,
  • Determination of specific biogas yields,
  • Operational support for plant optimization and
