ruminoPower: 500kW - 1,5MW+

With our "ruminoPOWER" series, we have been able to significantly increase biogas production and biological performance (η – biol) compared to traditional plants, using a two-stage fermentation process. The two-stage process enables the biomass to fully split the biomass and subsequently to achieve the complete fermentation of cellulose and hemicellulose. This allows us to use larger quantities of lingo-cellulosic biomass (e.g. landscaping material, straw). In addition, the two-stage process can achieve higher spatial loading in the fermenter, creating a reduction in the fermenter volume and in facilities costs.

The "ruminoPOWER" plant series therefore increases the digestibility of the biomass through a two-stage process.


Features and advantages

  • Increase in biogas production – increase in biological efficiency (η - biol)
  • Complete fermentation of cellulose and hemicellulose
  • Increase in digestibility
  • Reduction in fermenter volume
  • Reduction in the size of the plant
  • Reduction in costs
  • Fewer tanks, less own electrical and biological consumption
  • A broader variety of biomass can be utilized
