Since its foundation in 2001, the WELTEC group of companies from Vechta in Lower Saxony has developed into one of the world's leading specialists for the construction and operation of biogas and biomethane plants. The Group covers the entire biogas value chain with the design, planning, and construction of energy plants, permanent and temporary plant operation, 24/7 service, and sustainable utilization concepts for output streams.

One of WELTEC BIOPOWER's strengths is the construction of individual, technically sophisticated solutions up to a plant size of ten megawatts. A central element here is the high proportion of components developed in-house. Stainless steel technologies also ensure flexible substrate use, fast assembly with low effort, and a consistently high-quality standard regardless of location. After commissioning, WELTEC's mechanical and biological service significantly ensures economic efficiency.

The company has just as much experience in the field of biogas production and utilization. At ten of its sites and five sites operated for a fund, the plants produce around 165 million standard cubic meters of biogas annually. Some of this is processed into biomethane and made available to energy suppliers and filling station operators throughout Germany via the public gas network. Furthermore, at 16 locations, municipalities and companies, such as those in the gardening, housing, and healthcare sectors, are supplied with decentralized heat as part of WELTEC's energy contracting.

Proximity to customers and investors is an important concern for the biogas specialist, which is why the Group is represented worldwide with its sales and service network. Customers include companies from the waste and food industries, agriculture, and the wastewater sector. The WELTEC Group and its 164 employees have implemented over 350 energy plants in more than 25 countries on five continents. The biogas specialist thus ensures annual savings of around 600,000 tons of CO2eq.
