Small Biogas System 20kW
by: Sarel

Hi Karen,

My name is Sarel Steyn from germany, I have a German company that developed a small biogas system that runs mainly on manure, from horse to chickens. The patented technology was developed by the Uni in Innsbruck, Austria.
The smallest system is a 20kW system that uses the dung of a bout 100 cows, as an example to make rougly 150 000 kW/h electricity and 200 000 kW/h heat per year. This system cost rougly 150 000 Euros and can comes delivered as a kit in one container, and can be build in 18 days.
Here the website link unfortunatly its in German. You can mail me and I´ll send you info in English.

We would also like to enter the US market with this technology and are looking for partners, as the systems come with a 20 service contract.

Merry xmass,
