WELTEC BIOPOWER joins the American Biogas Council
Based in Germany, Weltec Biopower specialises in the field of stainless-steel biogas plant construction; it has developed and built anaerobic digestion (AD) plants since 2001.
“We look forward to our commitment in the US and are convinced that we can contribute to the growth of the biogas industry,” said Dr Kevin Monson, international sales manager of Weltec Biopower, who will represent the firm in the US market.
“Our tried and tested technology delivered under one turnkey contract and handed over at full output will be particularly addictive to developers looking for proven quality high-uptime plants with short lead-in times.”
The timing could not be better, as President Joe Biden has launched his climate plan, which aims to promote sustainable energy generation with a total of around $2 trillion (€1.65 trillion). With the help of the budget, the US is striving to supply itself with 100% carbon-free electricity by 2035.
“Made in Germany has always been a synonym for high-quality engineering and together with our US partners and our experience from over 300 AD plants, we are confident that we can make our contribution to making the US climate-neutral by 2050,” said Monson.
“Based on two decades of AD experience, we see ourselves as an attractive partner for US developers, financers, agricultural businesses, supermarket and restaurant chains, food manufacturers, and municipalities. There are numerous opportunities to benefit from the RNG subsidies, offset fossil fuel use, and to promote climate protection with the conversion of organic wastes to clean, green, locally-sourced RNG.”
Patrick Serfass, executive director of the ABC, commented: “We are incredibly excited to have Weltec join the ABC. Their leadership and reputation in the industry precedes them as a result of their scores of installations worldwide. We’re excited to have them help us grow the biogas industry in the US.”
