About BTS Biogas

BTS Biogas is one of the most important providers of biogas plants and considered a pioneer in this sector. The core expertise of our company lies in planning, producing and constructing the plants. For over 20 years our qualified team of engineers, biologists, chemists, agronomists, engineers, designers and marketing experts has gained experience in the design, construction and operation of biogas power plants and thus offers expertise in service, consultation and biological support.

We stand out through our wide range of products and solutions that are tailored to the individual customer’s requirements. Our complete service, in addition to maintenance and technical servicing also includes biological support, which enables us to provide an optimal biological and technical process conditions paired with maximum operational reliability. We are operating according to the principle of economic cycles and therefore also engage in the upstream and downstream processes associated to biogas production.

As an agricultural specialist, we own a laboratory in Porto Mantovano/Italy called “METANlab”, where we further develop our experience and expertise to ensure the optimization of the seed, harvest and silage as well as the biochemical operation of the biogas plants.

Our all-in-one service: different service packages to meet diverse requirements and needs

In order to ensure the continuous and smooth operation of our high-tech biogas plants, we have set a particularly high value on service – and we keep on investing in the ongoing development support offerings. A team of experts is at the service of our customers on a 24/7 basis, 365 days a year. Full support – either biological, technical or automation assistance – maximises the profit while ensuring reliability and optimal technical and operating conditions. Customers can count on a highly specialised team with guaranteed and extremely quick intervention times wherever our service packages are offered.

The services offered include:


  • Substrate and raw materials management
  • Quality management: recurring inspections, commissioning and repairs
  • Complete biological support, including the acquisition of fermentation auxiliaries
  • Property management
  • Maximizing profitability through maximum availability
  • Monitoring process biology
  • Cost security through contractual relationships

BTS Total Certification

With “Certified Biogas”, we add another element to the technical and biological assistance services. We offer (within preselected regions) a total certification that protects the plant manager in the event of checks relating to plant operation and supply.


A series of products ranging from pretreatment, to control and to post-treatment solutions

Our technical and biological know how and the extensive experience in the management of biogas power plants has led to the development of countless products and solutions that have become part of the standards of our plants. We are referring to the systems for plant production, management and control, the pretreatment and post-treatment of the substrates and technologies for biomethane production.


Biogas power plants for every needs

BTS Biogas offers an extensive product range of biogas power plants comprising modules from 25 kW to 1.5 MW+ which can flexibly be combined and multiplied. In addition, various types of biomass can be used, from the manure to energy crops and agricultural residues. There are also plant types that exclusively burn organic wastes. This allows us to respond to the needs of the most diverse customer Groups, from the farmer with less land to the industrial agronomist to communities and investors in many countries with diverse construction possibilities.

All components of a biogas plant are provided by the system supplier BTS Biogas from a single source. Strategic partnerships with professionals in the concrete and container construction fields or with gas motor suppliers exist so that BTS Biogas can offer turnkey biogas power plants.

Thanks to the self-contained container solutions, the smooth transportation of all needed components for the operation of a biogas power plant is possible.

BTS Biogas app

The app for tablets available from the Apple Store and Google Play (for Apple and Android, in several languages) effectively illustrates the system of a BTS Biogas plant and describes all of its functions and advantages. Our BTS Biogas app not only provides an overview but gives you the option of obtaining detailed information simply by touching the screen. In addition, there are images and videos and you can find technical descriptions of the individual plant components.


Detailed biologic analysis in our own laboratory

With our laboratory, the first one in Italy dedicated exclusively to the biogas world, we want to develop a new generation of biogas power plants, to ensure long-lasting, safe and profitable operation. By following scientific methods, we collect empirical values that describe the production processes and biogas efficiency in various conditions. Thanks to this data, we are able to constantly improve the design and management of the biogas power plants, by entering it in the dinaMETAN database.


The objectives of our research and development department are:


  • the use of state-of-the-art technology
  • the consideration of environmental protection requirements
  • the guarantee of a safe and profitable operation of our plants
  • the realisation of an optimal production method

In our own laboratory, we have experienced employees working on improving our products and plants on a daily basis.
