Aalborg Energie Technik a/s Biomass Cogeneration Plant

Pfleiderer, Neumarkt, Germany

At the Pfleiderer Neumarkt site there is a biomass-fired cogeneration plant owned and operated by Pfleiderer AG.

The boiler plant was the second plant delivered to Pfleiderer AG by AET employees and was mentioned as Best Available Technology (BAT) in the IPPC report ‘Large Combustion Plants’ published by the EU in 2006.


The cogeneration plant annually burns 200,000 tonnes of contaminated wood, demolition wood, railway sleepers, saw and sander dust.


The Pfleiderer Group is one of the leading, European manufacturers of engineered wood and surface-finished products.


The Pfleiderer Neumarkt cogeneration plant is situated next to the factory and uses residues from the production in order to produce electricity and heat.


Increased Capacity to 100 MWt

The boiler plant was commissioned in 1997 for a capacity of 73 MWt.


In 2001 the boiler plant was increased in capacity to 100 MWt by AET.
