Munich, May 21, 2014. The IFAT booth of the Werner Group ( provided the platform for floradry GmbH to showcase its new drying systems and florafuel AG its treatment procedure for biogenic waste which allows high-quality, CO2-neutral energy sources to be produced. The response from the trade visitors during this fair for water, sewage, waste and raw materials management was overwhelming. “Many visitors specifically sought discussion with us, so that we can work together with them to find concrete solutions,” explains Hans Werner. Mr. Werner, CEO of the innovative Munich-based company, is pleased to have received over a hundred concrete inquiries from organisations in Europe, China, India, Mexico, Japan and Australia.

“Those who showed interest were impressed by the contribution that the florafuel Procedure ( makes to decentralised energy supply by generating solid fuels from biogenic, regional waste,” explains Hans Werner. That this process represents a real alternative to composting or fermentation can be verified on the industrial-scale test plant set up near to Munich. 

Impressive Performance

Those who were particularly interested in the new drying systems floradry SMART and floradry TWISTER from the company floradry GmbH ( included biogas plant operators, pellet manufacturers and farmers. The floradry dryer excels with its high quality. Another advantage of the dryer is that it can be produced to suit the available space, required throughput rate and drying products used.
