Waste recycling for municipalities and companies

Organic waste: recycling not disposal

Does your municipality or company want to help to reduce CO2 and preserve resources? Then you've come to the right place. It's so easy: the potential lies simply in rubbish sacks. Around one third of household waste is recyclable organic waste. In our Kompogas plants, we produce CO2-free electricity, heating and natural fertilisers from organic waste.

We offer our consulting services as partial or complete solutions:

Natural fertiliser for the agricultural sector

Fermentation turns biowaste into nutrient-rich natural fertiliser. The waste is separated into solid and liquid fertiliser, both of which are used in agriculture and certified for organic farming. This enables us to close local material cycles and generate new growth.

Energy

Energy production

The fermentation process produces biogas in the fermenter. As well as being converted into electricity and heat in CHP plants, this gas can also be treated and channelled into the public grid, enabling it to be used in our homes or to power our mobility. The electricity that is generated is fed into the public power grid. A small amount of the heat energy produced is used to heat the fermenter, with all the rest able to be fed into a district heating network.
