It’s thanks to the holistic and visionary thinking of agriKomp’s founders, Robert Bugar and Michael Engelhardt, that the company now stands out as an international leader in Biomass technology. Our love of innovation stretches back to the first mobile biogas plant, known as the Gullewerk, and includes examples of brilliant engineering such as the Paddelgigant agitator. We’re known for our ground-breaking systems, efficient technology and on-going levels of service.
All our essential components are designed and manufactured in-house, guaranteeing absolute reliability and consistent quality. Key components, such as the flexible gas store (Biolene®), the paddle agitator (Paddelgigant®) and the robust feeding technology (Vielfraß®) have set international standards with respect to stability, reliability and energy efficiency.
It only takes a relatively short time to build a biogas plant but our relationship with you will last for decades. Great service is what you should expect from us, and that’s what we give, plus stable technology, reliability and the promise of continuous development, all aimed at ensuring your long-term profitability.
"If you wish to stay ahead you must be innovative, have reliable and efficient products in your portfolio and also provide a secure service. This requires dedicated people and solid engineering“, says Robert Bugar.
What's the Problem?
It’s this: At the moment there’s no solution that will allow the further treatment and use of potentially valuable manure in a way that’s both economically and ecologically feasible. Conventional methods often suffer from disadvantages such as odour environmental pollution , high energy consumption and low efficiency of the process .
The newly developed agriKomp process is designed fundamentally different ; the main focus is on the following points:
The agriKomp process treats the digestates of a biogas plant to such a degree that a usable, highly concentrated fertiliser is produced. This is achieved by extracting the maximum water content possible from the digestate using waste heat from the CHPS. This waste heat is not completely utilised by many other biogas plants at present. The digestates produced by our process can be concentrated and hermetically sealed with no dust or smell able to escape.
The advantages of this procedure are
The concentrated digestate has a considerably smaller volume, resulting in:
By converting the volatile ammonia contained in the digestate into the stable ammonium sulphate, ammonia emission is almost entirely prevented.
Increased utilisation of the waste heat from co-generation.
We develop and manufacture all essential components ourselves. They’re all manufactured to the same high quality and conform to the relevant international CE and safety standards. Because we’re always looking to the future, developing and innovating as we go, you and your plant will always be on the cutting edge!
As a successful businessman you’re probably already planning ahead for tomorrow by investing today, and if you are making capital investments, you need to be sure you have a reliable partner that’s able to keep in step with your development plans. That’s agriKomp! Work with us and you’ll always be ahead of the game:
With our constant flow of technical updates you’ll always be fulfilling every legal requirement placed on you. You’ll be improving your operator margins, increasing the diversity of the materials you can use and upping your volumes.
Assuming a biogas plant-life of 20 years minimum, it becomes clear how significant a reliable service partner is to guarantee successful on-going operating results.
In the long term it’s high-quality engineering, reliable biogas service and continuous updates that will ensure profitability of your biogas plant, and as far as updates are concerned, at agriKomp we think of these as being not only technical and biological innovations and improvements, but as important foundation stones for the future development and implementation of our employees’ know-how.
Many of our staff are from the agricultural community, or are closely tied to it. They are fully supportive of renewable energy and the opportunities that this brings to rural regions.
We place a special emphasis on everyone working at agriKomp having the widest possible experience and knowledge of every part of the process and manufacture of a biogas plant, not just their own specialist area. We also promote and attend seminars and training programmes whenever and wherever possible.
Working in partnership with you we’ll work through your circumstances and requirements to create a bespoke plant specification and proposal guaranteed to be economically successful.
We won't just base our calculations on a static single year but take the complete feed-in tariff period into consideration, giving you an accurate calculation of your proposed profit over the period. This will support your decision-making, equip you when seeking finance and enable you to plan your financial future.
When you need our help, we’ll be there for you. During the construction of your plant our process engineering, motor technology and process biology specialists will be with you. During commissioning we’ll be by your side and will give you a comprehensive set of supportive documentation, and for the many years of your biogas plant’s life our mechatronics, construction, electrical, mechanical and heating engineers, farmers, process engineers, agricultural engineers, biologists, agricultural machine technicians, will be at the end of a phone or ready to work with you on site, offering the highest level of maintenance support.
