Our broad knowledge base includes heat and power generation through steam raising boilers, biogas engines, steam turbines, and organic Rankine cycle technology. Recent projects have included upgrading biomethane for use as a transport fuel, and for injection into the gas grid, as well as heat only biomass boilers.
