Biogas Specialist WELTEC BIOPOWER and Enscope Bundle Competencies in Australia

Tapping the Great Potential for the Development of Green Energy Down Under

In May 2022, WELTEC BIOPOWER, the world‘s leading specialist in the establishment and operation of biogas and biomethane plants, signed a cooperation agreement with the Australian company Enscope. The partners‘ common goal is to offer complete solutions from the plant drafting stage to the turnkey rollout in Australia. „With Enscope, whose offices are based in Perth, Brisbane, Melbourne and Darwin, our market position in Australia will become much stronger. The cooperation constitutes a sound foundation for the further expansion of our activities and efficient growth“, says Vladimir Bogatov,who is responsible for the sales operations of WELTEC BIOPOWER in the Asia-Pacific region.

„In Australia, there is an enormous potential for developing green energies from renewable organic sources“, emphasises Kane Ramsay, President of Enscope. Furthermore, the newly elected Federal Government has a stated policy of a cut in carbon emissions of 43% by 2030 when measured against 2005 levels, a significant increase over the previous Government’s policy of a cut of between 26 and 28%. Various industry leaders and several State Governments are also calling for mandated Renewable Gas Targets in Australia’s gas distribution networks. These policies are very supportive of a large scale ramp up in Waste to Energy and Renewable Gas Projects over the coming years.

Accordingly, the range of interests and project targets of WELTEC and Enscope includes multiple aspects such as the reduction of costs for the disposal of organic waste, the development of energy income sources by addressing the demand for energy sources (gas, power, heating and cooling) and the reduction of greenhouse emissions – or a combination of all of these aspects.

„Recognising the rapidly shifting community sentiment in Australia and the aspirations of our traditional, long-standing natural gas based customers Enscope is proud to partner with WELTEC for the safe, efficient and reliable application of globally leading technologies within the Australian market“, adds Kane Ramsay. „WELTEC and Enscope both look back on a history of more than 20 years of successful project development in the energy and biogas sectors around the globe. Our strategic cooperation will provide the activities on the Australian bioenergy market with substantial impetus“ predicts Vladimir Bogatov of WELTEC BIOPOWER.

Australia is not the only place where renewable energy sources are gaining in significance; in Germany, too, the topic is attracting increased attention. The war in Ukraine is now forcing countries to reach their climate goals faster, to get prepared for a potential discontinuation of the supply of Russian natural gas and to close any resulting supply gap as quickly as possible. In the medium run, Germany could deliver 160 TWh of biomethane from its existing biomethane and biogas plants alone – enough to replace about a third of the imported Russian natural gas.
