One service provided by EnviTec Biogas Betriebs & GmbH Co. KG is the provision of in-depth advice and expertise by the team for Safety, Health and the Environment (or ‘SHE’ for short). These consulting services include safety inspections for plants requiring a licence according to section 29a of the Federal Immission Control Act (BImSchG): our Safety Engineer Friso Reinecke is a licensed appraiser according to BImSchG section 29b(1).
