Ten day whirlwind biogas development tour through Eastern Europe
It was deja-vu as we returned to the days of multiple meetings, in multiple Eurasian cities. This time we visited international developers of agricultural biogas (anaerobic digesting) projects on behalf of our client RCM Digesters of Oakland, California.
Before traveling we communicated at length with leads provided by the RCM website but more often from our own international business network. What we discovered was that “doors opened” to American companies. U.S. technology is respected and there was an expectation something interesting would be offered. That said, German speaking countries were considered the leaders in the biogas industry and as a result we found ourselves with serious competition!
Update: Late in 2016 RCM was taken over and upper management replaced. However, we moved up to representing PlanET Biogas. PlanET is a well established German based company that has built over 500 digester systems worldwide in less than 20 years.
