We are market and technology leaders in fermentation technology. We develop, construct and operate plants for recycling municipal and industrial organic waste. The Kompogas process produces electricity and heat ecologically, which is fed into the public supply grid or local heating network. Alternatively, the biogas can be treated for use as vehicle fuel. The fermentation residues are returned to the soil as organic fertiliser for agricultural use, and the material cycle is closed. Over 65 plants across the globe attest to the high quality and reliability of the process. The combined operating years of 65 plants add up to over 400 years. We operate 16 of our own plants in Switzerland. Roughly 300 communities and cities commission us to recycle their organic waste.
Over 20 years' experience in operating and constructing Kompogas plants proves that we use a proven and reliable technology.
Axpo, the leading Swiss energy service provider, acquired shares in Kompogas in 2006, and took over the company entirely in 2010. In doing so, Axpo emphasises the importance of material and energy recovery of organic waste.
