They are described as placing a high degree of importance on developing close relationships with their customers. They then seek to become a long-term reliable partner to their customers and see this as enabling them to respond successfully whenever specific needs and challenges arise for their customers.
Eisenmann: Biogas Business Features
Eisenmann’s special business offering is:
1. Their unique integrated designs which have been developed in-house, and proven to work well over many years and numerous projects, and which are described in their company literature as resulting in improved fermentation performance.
2. Their own manufacturing capabilities which mean that rather than buying in specialist AD Plant equipment they are able to manufacture it in-house, adding to quality, and keeping the chain of communication short and effective between customer and the equipment supplier.
3. Of all the EPC contractors working in AD, Eisenmann Biogas was one of the first, and has built many more AD Plants than most. It would be hard to find more well established partner.
4. They work extensively with local infrastructure construction contractors resourcing much of the work locally, and engage the best local advice or plant planning, licensing and techncal compliance. So that on all projects their presence in the community adds to the local skill base to the fullest amount possible and the price is kept as low as possible.
Eisenmann’s proprietary BIOGAS Green Waste (BIOGAS-GW) technology utilizes anaerobic digestion to convert high solid waste organics to biogas. The biogas can either be directed to a combined heat and power (CHP) system to produce electrical power or it can be cleaned/compressed and fed into the natural gas pipeline or utilized as a transportation fuel alternative.
The BIOGAS-GW system is described as an integrated organic waste to energy solution. The modular pre-engineered design incorporates the latest in material handling and feedstock pre-processing technologies. A typical system includes multiple input channels to accept a range of feedstock and the ability to separate unwanted contamination. The closed system design mitigates concerns over odor.
The have developed advanced technology which operates at a high dry matter content, enabling much organic waste which is currently usually composted or disposed of as landfill to be digested. As a result, they inform us on their website, these plants can generate additional energy and while still providing a reduced/ minimal odor emission. Inside this new technology their is a plug-flow horizontal digester, within which the substrate is continuously mixed by a horizontal agitator. The substrate is digested and most of the solids converted to biogas.
Eisenmann Biogas believes in its staff, and report that they value their emplyees very highly. They speak of the importance of employee development is the central focus of their foundation. As an equal opportunity employer, they say they hire and retain highly skilled individuals, and that they keep them within the organisation by providing them with challenging opportunities. The result, they inform us, is a team of engaged, committed employees who rank among the industry’s top professionals.
The company ethos is simple and is illustrated by the following quotation: “We work hard and achieve results in a competitive environment. We are customer focused and believe in responding to our customers quickly.”
Eisenmann’s BIOGAS-AG technology utilizes their leading anaerobic digestion technology to convert municipal solid waste, manure, and many other organic waste matrials, including crops, to energy. The biogas can either be directed to a combined heat and power (CHP) system to produce electrical power or it can be cleaned/compressed and fed into the natural gas pipeline or utilized as a transportation fuel alternative.
The BIOGAS-AG system is an integrated waste to energy solution. The modular pre-engineered design incorporates the latest in material handling and feedstock pre-processing technologies. A typical system includes multiple input channels to accept a range of feedstock and the ability to separate unwanted contamination. Above all Eisenmann states that the closed system design mitigates all concerns over odour.
