Composting and anaerobic digestion

We’ve focused intensively on the composting of biogenic waste since our founding. Our close collaboration with scientists, agricultural users and mechanical engineers results in products and solutions that ensure maximum ecological and economic efficiency, when adapted to local conditions.


The closing of cycles

The goal of composting is to convert organic sub-stances into stable, plant-friendly humus as quickly and odourlessly as possible. Composters try to get a high-quality product with the shortest possible rotting time and lowest possible emissions.

Anaerobic Digestion

Energy from organic waste

Anaerobic digestion is the economically and ecologically viable treatment method for organic waste with higher moisture. Green energy is produced from the decomposed organic material and compost and liquid fertilizer from the digestion residue.
