Burkhardt Energy and Building TechnolOgy

Genuine craftsmanship and renewable energies

Tradition and constant innovation have made Burkhardt GmbH, based in the Bavarian town of Mühlhausen, near Neumarkt i.d. Opf., what it is today: one of the German leaders in energy and building technology. We have been impressing clients across Germany and beyond with individual, bespoke solutions, expert advice and fast, reliable implementation. With the other sites in Dresden, Borkheide and Berlin, we are the perfect partner for your construction project in the areas of heating, ventilation and plumbing in Germany. 

In addition to building technology, we at Burkhardt GmbH have been focusing on renewable energies since 2005. We also offer efficient sludge drying plants since 2020 called BURKHARDT DRYLINE: transform sewage sludge to raw material!

We design and produce biomass power plants consisting of a wood gasifier and a combined heat and power unit (CHP) at the Mühlhausen site to generate electricity and heat for the international market. The patented wood gas generator which is operated with wood pellets, is a Burkhardt GmbH in-house development and has been mass-produced since mid-2011. In addition, we also offer cogeneration units running on natural gas. Our cogeneration units are mainly found in base-load coverage in local heating networks, industrial plants or facilities with constant annual heating requirements, such as hospitals, hotels or even agricultural and forestry businesses.
