Schmack Biogas is one of the few full-service providers in the industry. Besides technical support, the focus is on comprehensive micro-biological services. The company’s exceptional in-house research and development laboratory is used to identify and exploit potential efficiencies in the area of process biology. Schmack has won numerous awards for its innovative technologies and processes.
Specialist for wet and dry fermentation
With systems for wet and dry fermentation, Schmack Biogas covers the entire field of technologies for the fermentation of solid and pumpable waste. In wet fermentation, energy crops and organic waste materials from agriculture and the food industry are used as a pumpable substrate. Schmack’s biogas plants are distinguished by their high levels of flexibility and reliability. By using high-quality components manufactured in-house, particularly in the key areas of agitator and feeding technology, Schmack is able to offer process- and energy-optimized systems.
BIOFerm technology for non-pumpable raw materials
Schmack Biogas also offers the BIOFerm technology of dry fermentation for non-pumpable raw materials. This method is used to convert biogenic waste materials (e.g. municipal biowaste, waste from agriculture and landscape management) into energy. The requirements for the input material are extremely low and it is not necessary to pre-treat the biomass.
Schmack is also active in international markets. With Schmack Biogas Srl in Bolzano as well as BIOFerm Energy Systems in Madison, Wisconsin, Schmack Biogas has its own subsidiaries in Italy and the USA. In addition, Schmack Biogas has a presence in Great Britain through Schmack Biogas UK Ltd.
