Summary: 
The Danish client is a privately owned company with an extensive and long-lasting experience in the utilisation of industrial by-products. In addition the company focuses on the development of new solutions for utilisation of by-products. The company wants to develop the biogas segment of the business and is therefore looking for partners that can supply by-products containing carbon and/or protein (e.g. alchohol, sugar, fat, meat, fermentation residues etc).

Description

Description: 

The Danish client has more than 35 years of experience within the biogas sector. The main headquarter is in the Copenhagen area. As a result of an exponential growth, the company now has offices in Aalborg, Stockholm, Hamburg and a subsidiary in the UK. In addition the company operates in Sweden, Norway and maintains activities in: Ireland, The Netherlands, Belgium, Estonia, Latvia, Poland, Italy, Spain, Finland, Austria, and Croatia.

The company has a strong tradition in supplying:

- raw materials for biogas production and auxiliaries for biological waste water treatment plants.
- traditional and alternative solid biofuels.
- alternative fuels such as solvents.
- alternative raw materials for recycling within cement, mineral wool, tile and similar industries.
- alternative feedstuffs and fertilisers.

The company can also ensure safe treatment of different types of waste that are not suitable for recycling or utilisation.

Due to an increase of the demand on the market, the Danish company is now looking for foreign suppliers of residual products, resulting from different processing processes, that can help bridge the existent market gap.

Partner sought

Cooperation area: 
The Danish company is looking for partners that can supply by-products containing carbon and/or protein (e.g. alchohol, sugar, fat, meat, fermentation residues etc). More precisely the by-products can be supplied by the following industries: 1)Pharma/ medical industry - the by-products could be alcohol with organic contaminants; biomass from fermentation processes with yeasts and/or bacteria; organic acids or mixes of these. The main criteria for such products is a concentration of alcohol or organic acids over 60%, alternatively a COD (convert organic compounds ) > 850 mg O2/kg or a biomass/dry matter content > 20 %. Other types of industries could be companies producing API (Active Pharmaceutical Ingridients). Quantities of interest is from 300 ton/year if alcohol or organic acids based or more than 5000 ton/year if by-products stem from fermentation processes. 2)Fishing and food industry - the by-products could be dead fish or fish remains from the filleting process. The residual products should have a minimum of 20% dry matter and must be pumpable.The optimal quantities should be between 3000-5000 tons per shipment. 3)Biodiesel industry - the residual product could be all types of glycerin including fats (FFA), MONG (matter organic non-glycerin) or soapstock (by-product of caustic refining). Furthermore the by-products should come from the biodiesel industry in Europe and contain a minimum of 20% dry matter.
