More flexibility using alternative fuels

MAIER offers a variety of technical solutions for preparing alternative fuels from biomass. Our reduction machines are installed around the globe in plants producing biofuels, biogas and pellets. These machines process all kind of biomass, including wood, straw and bagasse.

Cement, paper and wood-based industries use our solutions for their energy systems and power plants, enabling complete or partial replacement of fossil fuels with alternative raw materials. Our machinery prepares substitute fuels, dust and granulates from reclaimed timber, fresh wood, bark, straw and comparable biomass types. The particle size and moisture content of the produced fuel are customized to your power plant.
