Construction work to expand EnviTec Biogas’ original premises in Lohne, Lower Saxony is in full progress, the foundation is already poured. With the addition of an extra 640 sqm, this will mean the site then offers a total of 3,000 sqm of office space, with 750 sqm of storage. “Building this extra capacity in terms of space goes hand in hand with the expansion of our new business in the production of the advanced fuel bio-LNG,” said EnviTec CEO Olaf von Lehmden.
With the acquisition of BioEnergie Park Güstrow and the launch of the joint venture BALANCE EnviTec Bio-LNG GmbH, EnviTec Biogas is developing the new and lucrative bio-LNG market. “Alongside capital investment and our innovative strengths, we will naturally also be needing the necessary expertise and a sizeable addition to our team,” von Lehmden added. The expansion to the Lohne site will provide facilities for another 30 employees.
The company’s production location at Saerbeck is also being further expanded – in terms of space and also personnel. “The existing production area for our innovative EnviThan gas upgrading system is being expanded by 1,800 square meters,” commented von Lehmden.
Renewable energy is naturally an important point of focus for the building work itself, with Lohne and Saerbeck both being equipped with PV systems. The company’s vehicle pool is also being steadily transitioned to natural gas and electric vehicles that run on bio-CNG and PV power.
“We’re pleased to see an upswing in the market for the green fuel biomethane, which has finally come about – especially in transport – thanks to RED II,” explained the CEO, while also calling on lawmakers to engage fully with new technologies.
