Ductor and R&P Group Partner to Integrate Ductor® Technology for Biogas Producers

Ductor GmbH and Rücken and Partner Group (R & P Group) team up for cooperation to integrate Ductor® fermentation technology within existing and new biogas plants initially located in Germany. Ductor has signed several Ductor® Add-On sales contracts to be delivered in the northwest of Germany. The R&P- Group will provide all technical design and project management services for the physical construction needs. The target is to complete the first plant by the end of quarter 3/2016.

Ductor’s microbiological fermentation technology prevents ammonium inhibition in biogas digestion. With Ductor’s technology the customer is able to harness the power of underutilized and high-nitrogen biomasses such as chicken manure. This new technology revolutionizes the economics of biogas production.

“It is very important for Ductor to have a highly competent and reliable partner, such as R&P- Group, to implement our groundbreaking biotech solution,’’ says Ari Ketola, CEO of Ductor Corp., and he adds, ‘’We are very happy to announce that R&P- Group will be our partner’’.

‘’From the first moment we were convinced to work on this revolutionary technology that has extraordinary future prospects,’’ says Michael Rücken, CEO of Rücken & Partner Group, and he adds, ‘’We appreciate that Ductor decided to have faith in our work and experience’’.
