EnviTec Biogas has announced a new management structure.
As of 1 April, and following a transition period, the management team has consisted of Jakob Falkenstein, Maurice Markerink and CTO Jürgen Tenbrink.
“We’re of course aiming to use this management structure to build on the achievements of the past few years while facing the new challenges and opportunities in the market with our technical expertise and entrepreneurial vision,” commented Olaf von Lehmden, CEO of EnviTec Biogas AG.
CFO Jörg Fischer and Lars von Lehmden, who previously managed plant construction with Jürgen Tenbrink, will remain associated with the segment via the newly formed Advisory Board.
Lars von Lehmden, who was previously responsible for national and international biogas sales and related processes in plant construction, will continue to manage business development for the USA in this segment as well as project development for international own-operation projects.
Continuing to develop partnerships
“The biogas market continues to develop apace and project volumes are increasing,” said CTO and plant construction managing director Jürgen Tenbrink.
EnviTec appointed Tenbrink as the company’s technical director in 2002. Since 2010, his directorial responsibilities have expanded to include research and development, quality assurance, purchasing and project execution. In his role as plant construction director, he will continue to be responsible for the areas of research and development, purchasing, gas upgrading, CO2 liquefaction, electrical systems and process automation plus overall management of the company’s Saerbeck site from 2024.
“Projects are tending to become more complex and more synergy effects are arising in relation to ancillary technologies like carbon dioxide and methane liquefaction,” Tenbrink said.
Most recently, he and his team developed and implemented EnviTec’s in-house control and visualisation system as well as remote dialling systems with increased security against cyberattacks for biogas and gas upgrading plants.
His management team colleague, Maurice Markerink, noted: “Biogas is a key driver for cutting greenhouse gases, as it is capable of generating negative emissions and helping to achieve targets for carbon emissions – especially in the agricultural sector.”
Markerink joined EnviTec in 2008, where he initially assumed responsibilities in relation to international project development and was the managing director of several biogas plants in the Own Investment segment at EnviTec Biogas AG.
A relatively new face at EnviTec, Jakob Falkenstein joined the company a year ago as head of project and construction management.
With a professional background in metalworking, welding and mechanical construction, he can draw on extensive know-how in relation to plant construction.
In his career to date, he has mainly focussed on industrial plant construction and power plant technology in the field of waste-to-energy plants.
Falkenstein said: “Over the last few years, we’ve got a lot of international projects off the ground in Indonesia, Scandinavia and the USA. And we’re now also seeing plenty of project enquiries from Eastern and Southern Europe.”
Within the new management team, his primary responsibilities will be day-to-day operations – namely planning and construction, plus quality assurance and related accounting.
As a market leader, EnviTec is looking to establish strong relationships with biogas plant owners, developers and investors, working with them to increase the number of biomethane plants worldwide and achieve emission reduction targets.
The new management trio is also looking to develop new partnerships with the aim of establishing long-term, mutually beneficial business relationships.
“This year and next year, we’ll be pursuing some initial projects in new markets like Indonesia, Poland, Spain and Sweden,” Markerink explained, noting that existing markets like the Baltic states, Czech Republic, Italy and Slovakia are forecast to become key markets for biomethane conversion projects, for which EnviTec is able to provide its own EnviThan technology.
