ISF Schaumann Research – ongoing dialogue between research and practice

ISF Schaumann Research plays a central role within the Union Agricole Holding AG group of companies as a powerhouse of innovation where new products and product groups are conceived of in the fields of animal nutrition, feed preservation and biogas.


Central role as a powerhouse of innovation for 30 years

Biogas research

Successful development in the field of renewable energies


The Biogas Division of ISF Schaumann Research has gained a number of ground-breaking insights regarding biogas production processes and their improvement within only a few years.


The biogas plant on Hülsenberg Estate comprises two lines, allowing practical trials of biogas products to be conducted on a commercial scale in direct comparison. The insights gained are then used to support the production of numerous biogas products that can be customised for any biogas operation.
