AEV-Energy GmbH

Plant // Equipment // Engineering services

At AEV Energy GmbH we provide the planning of plant and facilities, process engineering and equipment for the processing and utilization as an energy source of organic materials such as industrial and municipal sludge, organic waste, renewable organic resources and agricultural residues. Our product spectrum ranges from biogas plants exclusively for slurry, dung or energy crops to domestic refuse sorting stations combined with the fermentation of the organic residues. 

We offer well-thought-out technical concepts, established standard solutions for plant components and competent design of special solutions.

AEV Energy GmbH is an owner-managed company with its headquarters in Dresden. Since 1996 we have concentrated exclusively on biogas. Since 2005 we have been running our own company in this field: AEV Energy GmbH. 

During this time we have:

  • Planned, equipped or completely built more than 130 installations
  • Worked in more than 20 countries on four continents 
  • Planned and developed projects for plants from 20 kW to 3,000 kW, and built plants from 20 kW to 1,434 kW

We develop projects, plan and build plants for:

  • Organic waste from the food industry 
  • Urban refuse including the sorting of recyclable materials
  • Agricultural residues such as slurry, dung and feedstuff waste 
  • Renewable resources and energy plants 


Since 1996, we have been working in this challenging and interesting field. We have helped to shape the development from the first small (farm) plants right up to the latest generation of biomass power stations and have made valuable contributions. Our customers in Germany and abroad produce a high-quality energy source sustainably and in an environmentally friendly way using agricultural residues, biological waste from the food industry and renewable resources.


Protection of the environment and climate as well as providing a reliable energy supply are fundamental tasks for the current generation. Today, it is our responsibility to ensure that our children also benefit from an intact environment that is good to live in. This is our contribution. This is what we take responsibility for. Our name stands behind this philosophy and has done so for many years.

What we stand for

We supply you with well-proven modular solutions. In doing so, we place value on high-quality, durable equipment components with a low requirement for maintenance. We provide all the planning documentation, the entire processing and energy technology as well as the control systems, and we support you with putting your installation into operation. The continual improvement and optimization of existing and new plants is a fundamental aspect of this.
