Biogas Plants

Green Energy from Biowaste

By using biogas made from organic waste products such as manure, old grease or food waste, you put your trust in an inexhaustible energy source that provides valuable electricity around the clock. Which is why biomass is becoming becoming increasingly important as a source of CO2-neutral energy - besides wind and water power.
