Maximum yields with existing residues

Food industry

Biogas yields from waste material

A biogas plant from PlanET can reduce your disposal costs, establish a sustainable energy supply and improve your carbon footprint.

As an experienced partner in the food industry, we design optimal all-in-one solutions for you that are individually tailored to your requirements. You decide for yourself what kind of energy you will obtain from the existing waste materials: from biogas, electricity and heat via biomethane to bio-CNG, bio-LNG, CO2 or fertiliser, there are various options open to you.

With our extensive expertise and our own biological department, we are ideally positioned to meet your requirements. In addition, we have already implemented innovations in this specific sector for the food industry, which are used worldwide today.

Thanks to our many years of expertise, we offer tailor-made solutions that combine the highest technical standards, durability and unsurpassed reliability. On the way to your own carbon-neutral energy production, we accompany you on every step of the way: From the idea through project planning and approval planning to commissioning. And with our after-sales services, you will continue to secure the best possible yield through continuous optimisation. This way you always have a competent contact person at your side.

Crystal clear project planning and calculated to the point.

all-in-one provider

Full service from the beginning

We support you with personal full service and high-quality all-in-one solutions. Thanks to the many years of experience of our teams, we implement your orders quickly, flexibly and customer-oriented. Your personal project manager supports you in all details – from the first idea to the successful realisation of your biogas plant and beyond.
Consultancy & design
We focus on the safe and economical operation of your biogas plant. That is why detailed advice is particularly important to us: We take the time to listen actively and to question the requirements. Only when we know your requirements will we develop individual concepts that are exactly tailored to your situation. This is the only way to achieve the best possible efficiency of your plant.
Planning of permits
For fast procedures and short decision-making paths, we support you in all permit planning – from the official permit for the new construction or extension of your biogas plant to applications in the areas of building law, the German Immission Control Act or permits according to water protection regulations. Thanks to our many years of cooperation with authorities, we answer your questions quickly and professionally.
Plant construction
Sustainability, efficiency – e.g. by short construction times – and optimal technology are paramount in the design of your plant. We not only use sustainable building practices and state-of-the-art control software, but also take current trends and technologies into account. A lead engineer from PlanET will accompany you on site during the entire construction phase. For a smooth expert inspection, you will receive a detailed documentation.
You can rely on our full service at any time – from planning to completion. For an optimal start, you will receive a detailed technical briefing and we will also create plans with which you can reach full load operation as quickly as possible. Later, we will also support you in the ongoing optimisation of your plant, both biologically and technically – for the best possible biogas yield. Our other services include the professional maintenance of your plant as well as support for expert inspection.
We are happy to keep you up to date with our training courses in various areas. In addition to operation training, we also regularly offer lectures on current topics with changing speakers. In addition, we invite you to “Open Plant Day” as well as excursions to present new products and enable a regular exchange through the networking of plant operators.

Our answers to your questions

  • unpacking and preparation
  • fermentation (synthesis of biogas)
  • generation of electricity and heat by combustion of biogas in the combined heat and power plant
  • processing of biogas into biomethane and possibly further into bio-CNG, bio-LNG, CO2
  • feeding of biomethane into the natural gas grid
  • fermentation residues are often used as a fertiliser

Not only slurry and manure end up in a biogas plant, but also existing residues from the food industry are suitable for generating energy. This may include brewery residues such as draff and surplus yeast, food leftovers from restaurants and commercial kitchens, confectionery, bakery residues, vegetable residues, pomace, fats and much more.

Only unpacked material can be used in the biogas plant!

With our innovative technologies, we separate the organic material from the packaging. The organic material obtained in this way can be used to generate energy. Customised concepts are developed for this purpose in individual cases.

As a rule, yes. The German Federal Immission Control Act (Bundes-Immissionsschutzgesetz, BImSchG) determines how operators of a biogas plant have to deal with odours generated there. During the planning of the biogas plant, we will develop a concept for compliance with all limit values by means of odour assessment. For example, apart from the planning of many organisational processes to avoid emissions by precise extraction and subsequent filtering of odour-contaminated air, odour emissions can be largely avoided.
