Partnering opportunity

Retrofitting of a one-megawatt biogas plant or for newly constructed plants


A German company, active in the machine tools sector, has developed a container with digestion technology for a biogas plant. The advantage of the technology is the increasing in biogas productivity and the possibility to insert diverse materials into the biogas plant via bio extrusion. The company seeks industrial partners from the agricultural sector for further development of the technology under a technical cooperation agreement or for a commercial agreement with technical assistance.

Partner sought

The company is looking for partners from industry. Specific area of activity could be agriculture, user of biogas plants and recycler of organic waste. The partner's role should be testing the new equipment with technology or improving of an existing biogas plant and/or further development.


The German company, active in the machine tool sector, has long-term experience in environmental engineering. Under the slogan "Together we can expand your existing biogas plant or design a new one", the company is open for international cooperation. The modular designed container for the retrofitting of a one-megawatt biogas plant is a further development of the company. It can also be provided for newly constructed plants. The advantage of this technology is the increase in biogas productivity and the possibility of inserting diverse materials into the biogas plant via bio extrusion. Bio extrude of variable size can be embedded in the isolated container. A conveyor belt with detector does the feeding of the extruder. All metals are inductively discharged over a bypass. It is possible to integrate a tapper unit. In the process, the material is conveyed over a drop shaft into the extruder. The defiltrated material is ejected on the front site of the container via a stainless steel tube. From here, it falls selectively onto conveyor belt, worm gear or pump which leads the material into the fermenter. A crane is located inside of the container, for the purpose of maintenance work. All plant components are driven by the centralised control system. The company is looking for partners from agriculture industry for acquisition of the technology under a commercial agreement with technical assistance and/or for user of biogas plants and recycler of organic waste with capacities to help continue the technological development under a technical cooperation agreement.

Advantages and innovations

Agronomic advantages: - Increment through the usage of hybrid ray instead of maize silage (both extruded) - Monoculture of maize as bioenergy crop is replaced by a liberal crop rotation - Logistical efforts: high dry mass content, fewer water transports and thereby less volume to be transported, less humidity inside the plant and accordingly to be sprayed on the fields - Reduction of silo space and digestion tanks - Fields are quicker available - The land value improves due to a liberal crop rotation

How it works

  • Tell us about yourself
  • We’ll discuss with you
  • We put the right partners in touch

EEN help you find the right partner, rather than you going it alone.

Our role is to review and collate the most suitable submissions, and then send them to the client who posted the opportunity. We consult with you, and the client, to make the process professional and easy.

These are live opportunities. Your registration of interest on the site is just like a professional approach to a business at a networking event. To stand the best chance of success, make your submission really sing. Sell why the client who posted the opportunity should work with you. Excite them. Ask questions. Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.
