  • 1. INNOVATIONS IN ENERGY L E A D I N G I N N O VAT I O N S
  • 2. PROFACTOR DEFINES THE STATE OF ART IN TECHNOLOGY! Renewable energy resources and improved energy efficiency are the key to sustainable economic growth. The innovative ge- neration, treatment and use of these energy sources is a special service focus that generates state-of-art high-tech solutions through strategic networking of research, laboratories and engineering at PROFACTOR. It helps to fulfil the requirement expressed by in- creasing numbers of companies for alternative energy sources (with the benefit of reducing CO2 emissions) and of achieving a supply situation that is sustainable in the long term. A multidisciplinary team of biotechnologists, chemists and process engineers guarantees our partner companies an advantage with efficient production and use of gaseous energy carriers such as bio- gas and bio-hydrogen – but also of other, future-oriented energy sources and systems.

  • 3. The PROFACTOR Group is at the cutting edge of applied research in the energy sector within Austria; a fact that is evidenced by the following milestones: 2002 PROFACTOR achieves the first combination of biogas with fuel cells. 2005 PROFACTOR sets up the first biogas injection plant in Austria and Germany. 2008 PROFACTOR develops Europe’s most efficient hydrogen fermentation. LEADING INNOVATIONS
  • 4. INNOVATIVE IDEAS: RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT LEADING Our research team grasps new ideas and develops methods and equipment for the production of gase- ous energy carriers via biological processes: for example, maximizing the extraction of methane or hydrogen from organic wastes. Undesirable com- ponents such as hydrogen sulfide or siloxanes are separated by means of biological methods. PROFACTOR’s technology leadership in this field is evidenced by several patents.

  • 6. PROFACTOR GROUP: FIT FOR COMPETITION The PROFACTOR team guarantees the applicabi- lity of state-of-art scientific findings resulting from intensive contacts with national and international universities and research institutes: for small to mid-sized enterprises and for global players. Since the PROFACTOR Group was founded in 1995, the group’s innovative technological solutions have helped it grow from a 4-man production research team to Austria’s No. 1 in the field of applied production research: today, more than 120 staff works in multidisciplinary teams at several locations to guarantee the success of our partners and customers.
