Operators of biogas plants are facing difficult times: considerable increases in the price of raw materials and increasing restrictions on the spreading of liquid manure and fermentation residues lead to additional costs, which have affected many farmers in recent years. As a result, more and more biogas plants are getting into economic difficulties. In addition, structural and technological deficiencies are becoming increasingly apparent, and renovation measures as well as replacement investments have to be carried out.
Added to this is the growing resistance of the population to the "maizeification" of the landscape and the blanket demand by politicians and consumers for more ecology and sustainability in agriculture: excessively high nitrate levels in groundwater, a ban on glyphosate, bee protection, flower strips or the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions are just some of the areas of conflict between agriculture and the population.

At Aleia, our unique technology and experience enables us to help operators to run their biogas plant with a high, positive profit after a conversion..
We can upgrade up to 4,000 biogas plants in Germany with our patented processes and make them highly profitable again.
We achieve this by changing the substrate supply, namely the complete replacement of feed silage (especially maize), sugar beets, grain and manure low in dry matter by
and through a more intelligent use of existing plant components as well as, if necessary, plant expansion.
The sustainable and significant increase in the economic efficiency of the converted plants is to be achieved on the basis of the exclusive use of residues from agricultural plant and animal production through the consistent application of the necessary elementary basic operations for methane fermentation, which represent the known state of the art in anaerobic digestion and have been successfully applied on an industrial scale:
