Bright Biomethane acquires Dutch biogas upgrading firm Greenmac
Greenmac specialises in the design and turnkey supply of biogas upgrading systems with more than 30 years of experience in the field of membrane and amine technology. Additionally, Greenmac holds a strong service and maintenance organisation with an installed base across Europe.
Joining forces allows Bright to expand its in-house engineering capabilities on biogas cleaning technology and adds a large new network in several regions, particularly the DACH region, comprising Austria, Germany, and Switzerland.
“We see a great opportunity to support Bright with its global ambition to develop the industry and are delighted to continue working as colleagues for the worldwide deployment of renewable gas systems,” said Geurt Aalderink, director at Greenmac, who will hold a management position at Bright’s engineering department.
The acquisition provides Bright with a unique opportunity to add amine-based adsorption technology to its range of products and expanding its portfolio to over 150 project references across the world. This is in line with Bright’s mission to improve the deployment and conversion of biogas from organic residual streams and landfill gas while continuing to ensure the highest long-term value, the lowest carbon intensity, greater independence on geopolitics and more employment opportunities in local areas globally.
Martin Holtkamp, commercial director of Bright, said: “Bright has established itself as an industry leader in a relatively short period of time.
“The acquisition is an important step in realising our strong growth ambitions and Bright’s target annual revenue of €100 million in the next years.
“We look forward that both teams join forces for the continued rollout of global renewable energy projects by offering technologies and products aimed at converting biogas into valuable and sustainable end-products.”
