Successful development
Hofstetter Umwelttechnik was founded in 1975. The company worked at that time with partners, including landfill site operators, to develop degassing systems to overcome the problem of bad smells. Thanks to the company's gifted engineers, there followed a new generation of modern degassing plants for landfill sites, with the focus on combustion technology. Soon Hofstetter became the first port of call for customers seeking solutions for extracting and disposing of gasses from landfill sites. With visionary farsightedness, creative inventiveness and enormous energy.

Hofstetter BV has developed to become today one of the world’s leading providers of Gas Treatment Technology systems.

Gas Treatment Technology with vision
Wherever there is a build-up of gas that has to be captured to prevent it escaping into the atmosphere, Hofstetter has the ideal solution, technically and economically. With premium Gas Treatment Technology, your success is guaranteed.

Protection for the climate and environment is not only enshrined in much of our legislation, it is also supported worldwide in the form of the Kyoto Agreement. Our vision of becoming one of the world’s leading players in the environmentally sound handling of gas emissions goes hand in hand with these obligations. This spurs us on to develop, build and install the best plants in the world for the gas utilisation and disposal of gas. Our top priorities are quality, reliability and innovation.

Taking a long-term view on treating the Earth responsibly is vitally important nowadays. By using greenhouse gases as sources of energy, we can replace fossil fuels in generating power. We enable our customers to make direct use of these gases, and protect the environment at the same time.
