About Company

VERBIO Vereinigte BioEnergie AG (VERBIO AG), with headquarters in Leipzig, Germany, is a leading independent manufacturer and supplier of biofuels to Germany and Europe. The company began producing biofuel in 2001 and today has over 600 employees producing biodiesel, bioethanol and biomethane (renewable natural gas), as well as feed, fertilizers and other by-products for the nutrition, pharmaceutical and cosmetics industries, all on an industrial scale at four production sites. VERBIO delivers its biofuel products directly to oil corporations and traders, independent filling stations, hauling companies, public utilities and vehicle fleets.  In January 2018, VERBIO AG formed its US subsidiary, VERBIO North America Corporation (VNA), with headquarters in Livonia, Michigan, USA. VNA plans to build, own, operate, and finance biofuel facilities across the United States and Canada.  VERBIO aims to be the leading biofuels supplier of the 21st century and believes that the future of mobility is green. Energy production from renewable resources will be a key component of the future energy mix and renewable resources have the potential to permanently replace fossil fuels.

VERBIO’s core values include:

  • Producing high-quality biofuels from raw materials which cannot be used for food production
  • Minimizing the carbon footprint of biofuels through production and logistical efficiencies
  • Forming partnerships with regional farmers to ensure sustainable farming practices
  • Fostering transparent relationships with employees, customers, government authorities, special interest groups, and the communities in which facilities are located
  • Aggressively and responsibly pursuing growth and innovation  


Biodiesel is a sustainable alternative to the use of fossil fuels in heavy transportation.  The manufacture and combustion of biodiesel produces substantially less CO2 than fossil diesel and helps reduce domestic dependence on fossil oil.  This biofuel can be produced from rapeseed, canola, soybean, palm, and other plant- and animal-based oils.  In the transesterification process, lipids (oils) and methanol react with the aid of a catalyst to produce fatty acid methylester (FAME). Glycerin is produced as a by-product, which can be processed to a high-purity by-product used in pharmaceuticals and cosmetics.  Oils contain fat-soluble accompanying substances called sterols. VERBIO has developed and patented a technology for purification of sterols from oil-based biodiesel inputs. This process further adds value to the production process.


Ethanol fuels are now used all over the world as biofuel in internal combustion engines and its use as a fuel substitute or additive in motor vehicles has increased in recent years.  Bioethanol is an alcohol which is produced by fermenting raw materials containing sugar and starch. It is produced from grain which may be unsuitable for food production and animal feed and purchased from regional partners. The main buyer of bioethanol is the oil industry for blending into the gasoline supply.  VERBIO has developed a proprietary cold mashing process – an energy-saving production method in which the mash is heated to only a slightly increased temperature compared to traditional bioethanol production methods.  VERBIO has also developed a unique technology to convert thin stillage, a by-product of bioethanol production, into biomethane and a residual ammonium sulfate fertilizer solution.

Biogas (Renewable Natural Gas)

Renewable natural gas (RNG), also known as biogas or biomethane, can be used as transportation fuel in vehicles running on compressed or liquified natural gas.  RNG can be produced from various agricultural feedstocks, including non-food items such as livestock manure and straw.  Feedstock undergoes the process of anaerobic digestion in large tanks over the course of 20-60 days. During this process, raw biogas is produced comprising about 55% methane and 45% carbon dioxide. Carbon dioxide and other impurities are removed through a biogas treatment process, leaving nearly pure biomethane gas which is chemically equivalent to fossil natural gas. This biomethane is then suitable for injection into the natural gas transmission or distribution grid.  VERBIO has developed a technology to produce RNG from pure cellulosic material, such as corn stover or wheat straw.
