Product Portfolio
  • BioGas Systems and Products

      • PlanET Rotacrex 750

      • Save £35,000 annually with micronisation

        Substrate flexibility and cost reduction – PlanET Rotacrex is a powerful and efficient substrate preparation tool, which can easily be integrated into existing anaerobic digestion (AD) plants. Difficult substrates such as grass, straw or manure is shredded efficiently for optimum gas release, which as a result provides a higher gas yield. It is possible to integrate low cost raw materials in the substrate mix without compromising the gas yield.

        Never before has RePowering been easier! Even if you are looking for ways to expand, but you have no permission for construction of additional feeder PlanET Rotacrex can be a rewarding alternative: the efficiency of your system is increased without increasing the feeder volume. The powerful shredding technology has already proven itself for many years in the waste and food industry. Especially the experience gained from the Rubble Recycling makes the Rotacrex less sensitive (for impurities).

      • PlanET Vario

      • 100% of our Customers are satisfactory of our PlanET Vario

        No such thing? Just ask our customers! We already have and they all responded with ‘very likely’ and ‘likely’ to the question ‘How likely would you be to purchase the PlanET Vario solid charging system again?’ We have also used many responses to our customer survey as an opportunity to improve the technology even further. For very sticky or long-fibre substrate, for example, there is a second loosening auger to ensure smooth further transportation.

        If you wish to feed both solid and liquid substrate into the digestion process, our PlanET eco® flow is the optimal technical solution. This is where solids are poured into the AD plant via a pipeline, a system which is particularly beneficial for customers who wish to feed several digesters at the same time. As a special added extra, PlanET Vario offers you a 5-year warranty for conveying strings. Such is our service commitment to you.

      • PlanET Bio Mix

      • The efficient mix of substrates makes the difference

        Difficult substrate? Several digesters? The combination between vertical mixers and the unique PlanET MultiRotor auger input is eminently suitable to reliably feed several digesters with substrate. The strengths of PlanET Bio Mix consist in its ability to decompose and mix uniformly. A frequency converter each and a motor per helical mixer guarantee an individually adjusted operating capacity with minimized own power consumption. Only PlanET offers such advantages for your biogas plant. Come and see PlanET Bio Mix for yourself. Arrange a visit with the regional consultant in your area.
      • PlanET Gorator®

      • Gorator®: greater gas yield with micro-crushing

        PlanET Gorator® decomposes, defibres, grinds, mixes, homogenizes and conveys – in short, it conditions your substrate in an extensive range of physical and mechanical ways. Decomposition of organic materials in your biogas system depends very much on the material surface, i.e. the contact surface for bacteria. That’s why PlanET Gorator® is a suitable instrument to improve gas yield in terms of both quality and quantity.
      • PlanET DesiUs

      • DesiUs: Micro crushing with ultrasonic waves

        PlanET DesiUS is a module in the SYSTEMBIOGAS product philosophy and is thus ideally suited to provide targeted re-powering of your biogas system. In order to extract more gas from your substrate, PlanET DesiUs can be flexibly integrated into existing process engineering systems.

        Unlike Gorator®, DesiUS uses ultrasonic waves to speed up anaerobic decomposition of fermentation substrate. Heat and enormous pressure are used to break up existing cell structures. As the cell walls disintegrate and liquid is released, fluidity is improved. This ensures less work for the agitator and saves energy. You thus benefit on many levels. Only PlanET can offer you so many advantages.

      • PlanET pumping technology

      • Safe, simple handling and high-performing

        Safe, odourless pumping of slurry from one tank and into another? No problem with the PlanET Compact Distributor. We supply you with this technology module in its compact design, pre-mounted on a distribution block, and with an integrated rotary lobe pump for stress-free substrate management. The rotary lobe pump allows you to draw and apply pressure in a single pipeline, to which you can connect up to six tanks. This means that the PlanET Compact Distributor is eminently suitable for re-powering and extension projects. If you wish to integrate your pre-tank into your slurry infrastructure, our specialist consultants will check whether a mixing pump can pump slurry directly into the digester or whether the two systems can be combined. You will have a safe, simple, high-performing solution whatever system is deemed best for your needs.
      • PlanET eco® mixers

      • Optimum agitators, good biology - excellent efficiency

        You will not achieve satisfactory plant efficiency without optimally designed agitating technology. The substrate will only be uniformly mixed and allow you to get the best out of your system (input, system) if agitators match the tank size and the substrate type. The patented PlanET eco® agitator series offers you all types of time-tested agitator technologies, from submersible mixers and large wing agitators through to paddle agitators – low own power consumption at all times. These agitator always features a long service life and are wear-resistant.
      • PlanET eco® cover

      • Strong high-tech gains better desulphurisation

        Synthetic high end texture instead of wooden beam layer: PlanET eco cover® desulphurises biogas intensely and reliably inside the digester and thus delivers the required gas quality for your CHP unit. Your benefit: you do not incur any investment or operating costs for biochemical filters. This polyethylene (PE) fabric offers enough surface as an adhesive layer for hydrogen sulphide and is also more stable and more maintenance-friendly than comparable structures. As a further development of the classic wooden beam cover, PlanET eco cover® is a decisive step towards greater efficiency, targeted cost reduction and corrosion resistance in contemporary biogas technology.
      • CHP

      • Full capacity for pilot injection engines and gas CHP

        PlanET AD plants demonstrably offer optimum gas yields, which will allow your CHP to run at full capacity, whether you use a pilot injection or gas combustion engine. Over 8,000 operating hours per year are the rule rather than the exception with PlanET. We will gladly advise you whether a pilot injection unit is best for your AD plant, the electrical efficiency of which has now reached up to 47%. Or you may decide on a gas CHP which is particularly suited to projects which include heating concepts due to its high thermal efficiency. You will always benefit from our unique availability of spare parts and materials procurement at a local level. PlanET Biogastechnik is also the exclusive service partner for Schnell Zündstrahlmotoren AG.
      • Gas drying

      • Optimum gas quality for satellite CHPs and micro-gas networks

        Is your CHP directly next to your biogas plant? If so, PlanET’s underground gas drying system is ideal for using raw biogas in your CHP. PlanET engineering offers you a practical container solution providing all necessary gas processing steps for transporting raw biogas to a satellite CHP. This technology container delivers gas drying and high-grade sulphur removal in a compact module.

The gas technology module is thus your ideal solution for re-powering projects. Speak to us!
      • Gas flare

      • Maximum safety for you

        The PlanET Biogas Flare stack is available in three versions and can feature fully automated controls. Your added safety is reflected in the numerous technical features: the EN-certified burner controls take over the start-up process. The PlanET flare stack also features a low pressure warning device in its safety chain and CEE sockets and changeover switches on the control cabinet. The upstream compressor ensures that safe combustion is possible in the event of an emergency, even under the most difficult weather conditions. The flare stack can also be put into operation using an existing emergency power generator in the event of a power network failure. Easy and safe handling for a maximum of satisfaction in use – compare for yourself!
      • PlanET hygienisation container

      • Gas storage for tomorrow's energy

        A central technical element of the demand-oriented electricity production is the gas storage. Because even if the CHP rests, the production of biogas continues. On the structural basis of a double-walled air-supported roof the PlanET gas storage Flexstore XXL offers large storage volumes and highest safety standards. Thanks to their round shape, the air-supported roof possesses a much bigger gas storage volume than conical roofs do.

        But the shape isn’t the only benefit: the film material is designed for durability and is reliably fastened to the AD plant by an innovative new sealing system, which is easy to maintain at the same time.

        Hygienisation for biogas production

        Pasteurization is a necessary step in AD plants which are used to digest slaughterhouse waste, by-products and food waste. Digestate may only be re-used as fertilizer if the substrate has been heated to a minimum of 70°C for over 60 minutes. Co-substrates usually digest more quickly than energy crops, so the retention times are shorter. Reliable income for you with PlanET: despite short digestion periods, our co-substrate plants achieve exceptionally high gas yields.

        The solution also lies in adapted biogas technology in this case: designed especially for co-substrate plants, the PlanET hygienisation container can supply several digesters with processed substrate at the same time while a slow rotating agitator guarantees optimum fluidity. We offer you added safety with an integrated overspill and overfill protection devices. The whole process is logged in the PlanET control system. This is how contemporary co-fermentation works.
