- Fair distribution of resources
FlexBio sets new standards for the wastewater recycling of the future.
Our mission is technology and market leadership in the field of wastewater treatment, water recycling and the recovery of energy and nutrients in a modern, future-oriented and sustainable corporate development. We would like to pass this claim on through cooperation with suppliers, customers and the general public.
Most valuable resource
Our employees are the basis of our development. At the same time, our cooperation is the prerequisite for great performance. Together we want to make a positive contribution to our world and create a sustainable future. In addition, we attach great importance to an open, appreciative and familiar corporate culture. We also pay attention to the health and in particular the occupational safety of our employees. We also offer a good working atmosphere and give our employees the opportunity to develop themselves professionally.
Dealing with resources such as energy and material use in the entire word creation chain always takes environmental aspects into account.
We are proud of that

Discover our story
FlexBio Technologie GmbH was founded in 2014 as a spin-off from the HAWK University in Göttingen. Our corporate philosophy is to provide our customers with the best possible support from the first idea to the turnkey system. The company FlexBio Technologie offers a modular system for the fully biological treatment of organically polluted industrial, commercial and agricultural wastewater using a specially developed process.
The first research activities and investigations with a fixed bed reactor took place in 2009. The first pilot system was tested in 2011.
The first wastewater treatment plant
started operations in agriculture.

Surface water management on biogas plants
Decentralized recycling of organically polluted surface water on biogas plants using the FLEXBIO process – scientific support
The first practical use of the FlexBio process was scientifically supported by the HAWK University of Applied Sciences, NEUTec department. For this purpose, the FLEXBIO process, which has been investigated on a pilot plant scale, is to be installed and operated for the first time in a biogas plant to treat contaminated rainwater. The first reference system at BioEnergie Bad Gandersheim is used to put the new technology into practice. The investigations enable an orderly implementation of the procedure taking into account the framework conditions as well as an optimization of the operation with the aim of the safe compliance with limit values. Taking into account the knowledge gained in the project, an economic feasibility study is carried out in order to better estimate the economic prospects of the process for the future.
Introduction of the first demonstration system
The mobile demonstration system can be used in the Food and beverage industry such as delicatessen production, potato processing, confectionery production or Breweries as well as in the field of Landfill leachate r can be used.
|Treatment capacity:||4000l / d|
|Biogas production:||0.25 m 3 /H|
International delivery to China
FlexBio Technologie GmbH has been represented in China by a partner company since 2017. The innovative technology enables a resource-saving and safe wastewater treatment. In the first step, an environmental analysis laboratory and a technical center will be set up. The equipment and test systems are supplied by FlexBio and looked after together with the staff on site. The laboratory and technical center is currently investigating the purification of leachate from waste treatment. The construction of a large-scale treatment plant by FlexBio Technologie GmbH and its partner company JC Environmental Services Co, LTD in Tianjin is already planned for 2018.
Market study first phase, eligibility for Horizon 2020
The first phase promotes excellent science in Europe and supports, among other things, the best SMEs in Europe in all phases of their scientific careers. These are usually coordination and support measures that help improve the framework conditions for SMEs. In addition, in order to provide companies with targeted support in bringing their innovations to market more quickly, a number of EU instruments for direct innovation promotion were introduced in Horizon 2020.
Certificate from the European Commission
for research and innovation
The first anaerobic wastewater treatment started in the food industry (delicatessen).
Taking into account the different framework conditions in the food industry, we have developed a sustainable solution for wastewater treatment. Our FlexBio® process enables anaerobic wastewater treatment to be used. Both a pretreatment to avoid “heavy pollution charges” and a full clarification for direct discharge are implemented with the process. This not only improves the CO2 balance, but also generates high-quality energy (biomethane).

The first wastewater treatment plant
started operations in a brewery.
As a result of the growth, the brewery produces ever larger amounts of wastewater, which is to be viewed as problematic in the small town, because even its own sewage treatment plant has reached its capacity limits. When looking for a solution, the rural brewery found FlexBio Technologie GmbH as a competent partner. The collaboration has proven to be very profitable. The brewery considers the modular and flexible construction, which can be expanded at any time, to be a great advantage.
Dimension: 1x 40 ft container
Power: 200 m³ / d
COD feed: 2,500 mg / l
COD discharge: 600 mg / l
Gas production: 80 kW
Methane concentration: 90%
Optimization of the existing SBR system:

New opening and moving into the new
Production hall in Einbeck
In June Flexbio Technologie GmbH moved into the newly built production hall with administration wing in Einbeck, in Otto-Hahn-Straße 7a with around 35 employees. The Göttingen, Gittelde and Northeim locations are merged here. The newly built building comprises a total of 900 m² of production space and 450 m² of administration. Overall, the production hall has enough capacity for around 100 wastewater treatment plants per year. Choosing the Einbeck location was a conscious decision, because the management has its roots here.
The opening of the location is an important step into the future for FlexBio. As an innovative green tech company, they focus on growth and global market leadership in autonomous solutions for water purification and water recycling. The patented FlexBio process enables many companies to deal sustainably with wastewater and use the
energy contained therein.
a strong team
A strong team, which we are constantly expanding, is required to achieve our corporate goals. In the next few years we will create many new jobs here in the Einbeck region, reports the management. We are also looking forward to our junior staff. As recognized
We are employing four apprentices this year for the IHK training company.
