The biogas-boom during the last few years encouraged many plant constructors to enter the market. In the long run only a company providing maximum quality will establish itself.

Experience of many years as a pioneer in the industry is our basis for a solid planning and a foundation for high capacity utilisation. Since its foundation in 1998 PlanET focuses on the highest quality. Innovation and ruggedness are no exceptions. On account of the dynamic nature of the market, our clients benefit from state-of-the-art development and persistent technology. Priority is given to consistent research and development. Thus, it is no coincidence that PlanET is known to be extremely reliable.

For years, PlanET has stood for dependable cuttingedge technology in the biogas industry. As a pioneer in the field, the company has made it a goal to continuously advance the development of all of its plants and components in order to provide its many customers with economic and energy-efficient solutions.

At PlanET, research and development always go hand in hand with the customer. The customer knows best what needs and requirements have to be taken into consideration. This results in practiceoriented, intelligent concepts which live up to the highest possible standards.

There are generally two distinct types of biogas plant: Agricultural and industrial. The type of plant generally depends on the input material. In addition to reliable technology, it is also essential to have a process which has been developed to suit the raw materials - both of which are particular strengths of PlanET Biogastechnik, which offers plants with some of the highest availability rates and degrees of efficiency worldwide. In order to tap the potential of biogas in a cost-effective manner, PlanET continuously improves its plant technology and researches the complex biochemical interactions in the fermentation process.

Biogas is an economically and ecologically significant way to produce energy. Fossil fuels are finite and pollute the environment to a great extent, unlike the biomass-based resource-saving alternative. The resource is renewable and its usage produces only as much CO2 as the plants have absorbed before.

As a result of technological progress made in the past few years, energy efficiency and low-maintenance, investing in biogas plants has become of more appealing. A new business segment has evolved for our customers, setting standards in the field of sustainability and cost-effectiveness.

Saveable and decentralized allocations of energy are the outstanding features in producing biogas.

Biogas is actually a mixture of gases, usually carbon dioxide and methane. Methane is the enriching component which is used for energetic use. Besides that, it may contain steam, hydrogen sulphide, ammonia, hydrogen and even traces of low fatty acids and alcohols.

Biogas is produced in fermentation tanks. Sludge, bio-waste and leftovers, fertiliser such as dung and liquid manure and selective energy plants like corn are ideally suited as input. It is a gas mixture which develops through microbial degradation of organic substances in vacua.

The energetic premium biogas can be converted to the block heat and power plant. The electricity produced in this way and heat can be used, during the process. The remaining substances are water and fermented organic material which may be used as high quality fertiliser.

Biogas is forward looking. Mixing it with wind-waterpower, photovoltaics and geothermy even a full supply is possible!

You can digest various organic substances in a biogas plant. PlanET endeavours, on the basis of a comprehensive analysis of your input materials, to find the appropriate concept and technique for you.

Agriculturally biogenous waste material like dung and liquid manure from:
Cows, calves, bulls, sows, farrows, porkers, chicken, hens, turkey hens, sheep.

Energy crops:
corn, grass silage, intercrop, beets, silage, potatoes, crop, sunflower silage, green rye.

Co-ferments like:
Apple pomace, brewer’s grains, biological waste, bleaching clay, flower waste, grease separation, fatty vegetable sludge, flotate sludge, solid fruit and vegetable waste. Hogwash, green fodder, potato pulp, distiller’s wash from potatoes, food remains, manure and digestive tract contents, mayonnaise, flour dust, whey, oilseed residues, paunch manure, purifying grains/corns, RME Glycerine, sugar beet pulp, beet tails, leftovers.
