Strategic Reframing and New Managerial Duo at the Styrian World Market Leader BDI-BioEnergy International GmbH

For 25 years, BDI-BioEnergy International GmbH has been market and technology leader in the planning and construction of tailor-made biodiesel plants and has established itself as globally acting company for solutions in the field of chemical recycling.

BDI GreenTech Solutions – sustainable solutions for an even greener tomorrow

The business area of chemical recycling offers customers unique process solutions to upvalue waste flows and industrial-scale process innovations.

Based on this key competence, plants have over the past years successfully been established for

  • the gain of high-quality pyrolysis oil from plastic waste
  • the phosphorus recovery from sewage sludge
  • the algal cultivation in a closed reactor system.

During the current business year, also the offer for biogas plant manufacturing has been enlarged.


BDI BioGas Technology – maximum energy independence for large-scale breweries

Based on BDI’s in-house developed fermentation technology, the globally largest biogas plant was established in 2015 for the brewery Göss, which is part of the Heineken group. By using malt spent grains directly from the brewery, it becomes possible to become independent of fossil fuels and to produce carbon-neutrally. Furthermore, the digested residue can be sold regionally to farmers as high-quality, certified fertilizer.
