Consulting

We support green gas projects from the initial concept idea through to implementation and beyond, including operation and maintenance. 

Our goal is to support the defossilization process worldwide by developing profitable projects in the fields of green hydrogen and biomethane. 

Our involvement is not limited to consulting, but goes far beyond that. We also establish new project companies or participate in existing ones, such as H2HS GmbH in Heinsberg, in which the project partners join forces to build and operate an electrolyzer with a hydrogen filling station and storage facility.  

Our services include studies, defossilization concepts, the development and analysis of business cases and the brokering of green gases.

We contribute the expertise we have built up over decades as a system supplier and service partner in dealing with hydrogen as well as our experience in plant operation to our projects. We are also specialists in the planning, implementation and operation of biogas upgrading plants. 

Hydrogen

Feasibility Studies 

As part of our feasibility studies, we develop or analyze already developed processes along the green gas value chain. This includes, for example, the testing or development of a concept for in-house production and subsequent use of green hydrogen or the development of process chains for purification, drying and compression of green hydrogen within large-scale industrial hydrogen production.

Defossilization Concepts

As part of our defossilization concepts, we support companies in the analysis and evaluation of their own locations and processes. We then make recommendations for the defossilization of locations and processes as part of the joint development of a defossilization strategy.

Development of Business Case Concepts 

Based on initial project ideas for the production and/or use of green gases, we carry out business case analyses. In doing so, we determine the project-specific hydrogen production costs and their components. We then optimize the costs, e.g. by adjusting the operating strategy.

Biomethane

We take care of the planning, licensing and implementation of projects to make biogas plants fit for the future and make a decisive contribution to the success of the energy transition.

The production of biogas is just the beginning; upgrading it to biomethane is the logical step towards future viability and sector coupling, e.g. in combination with hydrogen, the path to an emission-free industrial society.

Our experts are among the leading project developers in the field of renewable energies. With the development, operation and our own involvement in "Biogaspools für Stadtwerke GmbH & Co. KG", we have many years of experience in turning an initial idea into a functioning and profitable plant. We can build on this solid foundation.

Studies and Consulting Services

  • location & potential analyses
  • feasibility studies
  • calculation of the GHG reduction quota according to RED II with the specially developed GHG emission check
  • trading with the green gases and products produced

Financing

Our ongoing partnerships with individual investors and financial associates provide us with financing options for the implementation of projects. Whether debt-financed projects or equity financing, our many years of experience enable us to deliver the right option for you.

Safeguarding Sales

  • trading with the produced green gases and products

Planning

  • development of licensing documents
  • design of the systems from the selection of the correct and site-specific system technology to the dimensioning of the components

Fuel (RED II) and GHG Quota

  • The revised Renewable Energy Directive (EU) 2018/2001 (RED II) had to be transposed into German law by June 30, 2021. This offers biogas plant operators profitable opportunities to commercialize their biogas in the transport sector outside of the EEG.
  • Biomethane already achieves the highest CO2 savings compared to other biofuels and will therefore become significantly more relevant for the fuel market in the future. We will be happy to support you with the necessary certification of the plants and verification of the biomethane.
  • RED II prescribes increased quota for advanced fuels (including biomethane).
  • An increased proportion of animal rest & waste materials (liquid manure, HTK) is advantageous for the GHG reduction quota.
  • The GHG reduction quota is tradable.

Construction and Expansion of Plants

  • UBA expert opinion also gives small biogas plants a future if you switch to biomethane production.
  • We are specialized in the expansion, revamp and optimization of biogas plants, e.g. by adding an upgrading plant for the production of biomethane.
  • New biogas plants are increasingly being built in the area of biowaste composting.

Post EEG

  • the first biogas plants are already being phased out of EEG funding
  • in addition to follow-up funding, there are other lucrative concepts on offer
  • we offer tailor-made concepts to preserve the invested capital and ensure a future-proof orientation

Biogas Collection Line

  • economic benefits by combining several small biogas plants due to economies of scale in biogas upgrading -> Lower specific costs for larger plants
  • the central processing plant is supplied via biogas collection lines and thus benefits all parties involved

Use of Biomethane

Talk to us about the two utilization paths for your biomethane based on NaWaRo and we will support you in the CHP area. If you produce or want to produce gas in compliance with RED II, we will calculate this for you with our GHG reduction check calculator and support you in the certification and handling of the NaBisy process. We market biomethane from our plants and as part of our consulting projects.

Greenhouse Gas Reduction

Our GHG emission check is our calculator with which we can calculate the greenhouse gas emission reduction for you to meet the GHG targets of the German government and the EU. We have developed a tool specifically for this application to calculate the greenhouse gas reduction potential according to RED II. In our GHG emission check, the GHG reduction potential is determined based on the plant data. This can be used to derive guidelines for the future operation of BGA and BGAA.

Focus on Profitability

Our services enable us to combine decentralized green gas solutions for different target groups. The combination often makes these solutions profitable in the first place. Examples of this can be found in industry, communities and mobility as well as in the optimization at the interfaces of different renewable energies, but also in the linking of producers and consumers of green gases.
