For that, fully automatically controlled plants for the conversion of biomass into heat and power have been developed over the past three years. The first plants of this development project, into which according to Günter Dörflinger, member of the Managing Board, several million Euros were invested over the past three years, have now been commissioned.

Particularly proud is Johann Christof, Chairman of the Board of the family business, of the newly opened plant at Europe’s largest school, HTL in Mödling. “The newly developed wood gas power plant not only generates heat like conventional biomass plants, but simultaneously produces eco-power, which is fed into the power supply network”, the Christof Group emphasises in an interview with “Kleine Zeitung”. Therewith, the profitability of the plant was massively increased.“The efficiency factor lies at 85 percent, which is a very high yield”, says Dörflinger. With the proceeds from power generation alone, the entire demand for fuel as well as a substantial portion of the investment costs could be covered.
