Together, let's build your biogas plant!

Methalac, a French family-owned company, has been an expert in the design, construction, maintenance and biological monitoring of agricultural biogas units for 10 years. A major player in the construction of biogas units, Methalac lists over 50 units in operation and build about 12 new units per year throughout France and internationally.

Our history

Laurent PAUCHARD - Founder and CEO of Methalac : 

"Son of a farmer, I was raised on a farm in the north of France. After obtaining my degree in agricultural engineering, I decided to develop industrial biogas in order to help farmers diversify their income while producing green energy.

In 2009, as the concept of agricultural biogas was not yet developed in France, I went to Germany, where they were more advanced in this process for training. In 2012, back to France, I created the company Methalac. 

Biogas is a complex business in constant evolution but the key attributes shared by the whole team are passion, expertise and commitment to the customer."
