Axpo is a Swiss leader in the management of sustainable biowaste, operating several biomass fermentation plants and composting sites, a wood-fired power plant and mobile services for the recycling of organic waste. By using fermentation, our sustainable approach to resource management produces energy in the form of biogas, electricity, heat, and liquid or solid fertiliser from renewable biomass, including wood and residual materials like straw, crop waste, biowaste, and liquid manure.

Like fossil fuels, the combustion of biomass energy also generates greenhouse gas emissions but no more than the plants have previously extracted from the atmosphere during their growth.
Our Axpo Tegra subsidiary operates Switzerland's largest wood-fired power plant in Domat/Ems, producing renewable energy from various wood products prepared at the facility. The generation of sustainable, climate friendly energy feeds an independent electricity supply and brings significant economic value to the region.
Axpo's recycling efforts help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and make an important contribution to closing so-called material cycles of matter moving through ecosystems. As a reliable partner for local authorities, trades and industries, we are committed to providing sustainable solutions for the management of biowaste.
