Further details about the project

With the German Energy Solutions Initiative, the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action (BMWK) supports the transfer of energy expertise, the promotion of foreign trade and the facilitation of international development cooperation. German SMEs that offer climate-friendly energy solutions connect with foreign markets. The initiative focuses on topics such as renewable energy technologies, energy efficiency solutions, smart grids and storage.

The initiative creates various benefits: 

  • Improving economic, technical, and political cooperation between Germany and partner countries 
  • Encouraging the use of renewables, energy efficiency technologies, smart grids and storage technologies 
  • Boosting global interest in sustainable energy solutions 
  • Generating (innovative) jobs in Germany and abroad. 

Coordinated and financed by the BMWK, the initiative is implemented in cooperation with partners such as the German Chambers of Commerce Abroad (the AHKs), the German Energy Agency (dena), the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) and further international project partners and service providers.

Inter Engineering - Planning of plants for the recycling of municipal waste into energy

Villingen-Schwenningen, Germany 


The company developed a patented “CombiTech” technology which allows the direct use of mixed, contaminated, dirty, wet waste without segregation/separation and with practically no residues (except a small mineral fraction of stones, sand, ceramics, glass, etc.).  

The entire waste will be 100% converted into renewable energy. 

The process works fully automatic. The complete conversion into energy without residues allows a high energy output efficiency of >80% as compared to the inherent energy content of the input stream. There are no liquid effluents and the flue gases consist of only water vapor and CO2. 

The main advantages

  • Conversion of mixed, unsorted municipal waste into energy, without residual materials
