Anaerobic processes

“An anaerobic organism is any organism that does not require oxygen for growth. It may react negatively or even die if oxygen is present. An anaerobic organism may be unicellular or multicellular. For practical purposes, there are three categories of anaerobe:

  • Obligate anaerobes, which are harmed by the presence of oxygen.
  • Aerotolerant organisms, which cannot use oxygen for growth, but tolerate its presence.
  • Facultative anaerobes, which can grow without oxygen but use oxygen if it is present.”

We have been working on the development and implementation of anaerobic processes for several years in numerous projects, such as the biogas plant in Maria Lankowitz.

Solutions that make sense

Unfortunately this processes mostly still depend on the granted subsidies today, as the cost of fossil fuels – especially natural gas – are still too low even after the massive price increases in the recent years. However, in individual cases, with organically highly contaminated industrial effluents or in the digestion of sewage sludge the anaerobic process is already economically beneficial in the overall consideration.

We provide expertise, know-how and customized solutions for anaerobic processes.
