Environmentally friendly biomass

Electricity and heat from old and residual wood

We are already one of the market leaders in Germany in the use of biomass. In our biomass power plants in Mannheim and in Königs Wusterhausen near Berlin we produce environmentally friendly electricity from old and residual wood.

In addition, we operate more than 30 biomass heating plants throughout Germany and generate heat and process steam decentrally in them. The new waste wood plant in Ridham Dock (UK) went into operation at the end of the 2015 financial year. It has a net electrical output of around 23 megawatts.
