Corporate culture

Achieving more

Our corporate culture is defined by the values of climate protection, respect and value creation. Our employees are the most valuable resource: That is why we cultivate and promote an intensive team spirit with mutual respect.

A strong brand

PlanET stands for market-leading expertise in the areas of conception, approval, plant construction, biological and technical service, process optimisation and RePowering. We understand biogas technology in its entirety: By optimally coordinating individual processes, we ensure the high economic success of biogas plants.


Pioneers in climate protection

PlanET takes responsibility for society – above all by saving resources. Our decades of experience in sustainable energy production make a valuable contribution to reducing CO2 emissions, since biogas plants supply energy from renewable raw materials or organic residues flexibly on site or decentralised. At the same time, operators benefit from our simple and robust technology, which ensures stable yields and independence.

Climate protection has a long tradition with us: As early as 1998, the engineers Jörg Meyer zu Strohe and Hendrik Becker firmly anchored sustainability in the company’s philosophy. Together with the third shareholder and CFO Roland Becker, we work every day with conviction to sustainably advance the renewable energy biogas to protect the climate.

Since 1998

Our history

The two company founders Jörg Meyer zu Strohe and Hendrik Becker started out as biogas pioneers in 1998 in the tranquil town of Vreden. Their idea, unusual at the time, was to combine organic residues with climate protection, sustainability and economic efficiency. The passion for biogas is still the key to the success story today.
