BEKON was founded in 1992 in Germany and currently employs approximately 50 people. The company is a worldwide technological leader in the construction of batch biogas plants for generating electricity from waste. The first BEKON system went online in 2003 and has been operating successfully ever since. The BEKON dry fermentation process presently features approx. 30 patents which are constantly being amended as a result of the ongoing findings of research and development. With BEKON, the full potential of organic waste or biomass arising from both agricultural and municipal facilities can now be exploited. The BEKON technology generates biogas using naturally occurring microorganisms. The fermented material is then composted and processed into a high-quality organic fertilizer.
