The achievements, which are often made in close collaboration with research institutes, colleges and universities, form the basis for the development of new technologies, methods and processes, and for process and cost optimization.

Achievements which are also available to our customers and partners: From solving problems in biodiesel production to issues relating to the cost-effective capacity expansion for this fast-growing market.

Process Engineering


For the biodiesel industry, process optimization is at the core of our efforts. The goal is always to make the plants more cost-efficient and more effective. The topics range from the use of new oils and the optimization of individual reaction and separation stages in existing biodiesel procedures to how capacity expansions of 20 to 30 percent can be achieved cost-effectively through elimination of bottlenecks in the existing plants.

In these projects, we support you with interdisciplinary teams from development of the solution through preselection and testing in our labs or technical centers and finally, to successful large-scale implementation.



The core competency in the engineering sector is in the planning and construction of production plants - domestically and internationally. In the biodiesel area, we focus on optimization measures such as the elimination of bottlenecks. Our range of services covers:

  • Project management including quality, cost, and schedule controlling
  • Planning services such as potential analyses, basic and detailed planning
  • Specialist services from apparatus technology to production logistics
  • Construction and assembly management
  • And finally, support with commissioning and training of your employees

These services are provided exclusively by competent and experienced engineers. The key reason to ensure that the project goals can be achieved to your fullest satisfaction
