Europe’s leading provider of mobile filtration solutions, DESOTEC, today announced it has acquired the mobile gas filtration business of UK-based Environ Consultants. This transaction builds on a successful and long-standing 15-year relationship between the two companies, paving the way for a natural transition.

Since its inception in 1990, DESOTEC has pioneered the market for mobile filters, achieving exponential growth across its five key application fields of air emissions, chemicals, remediation, wastewater, and biogas. Its unique and innovative filter rental offering, combined with clear sustainable values, have enabled the company to expand into new regions and earn a name as the leading solution provider in Europe’s growing biogas market. The acquisition will further accelerate its growth trajectory with a focus on the UK and Ireland, whilst supporting the business’s sustainability ethos.

CEO of DESOTEC, Mario Hertegonne explains: “The value of biogas as a reliable and renewable energy source plays an ever-crucial role in our fight for a more sustainable future. The acquisition of Environ’s mobile filtration business will strengthen our position as market leader in mobile filtration solutions in biogas purification and is an important milestone in our international growth trajectory.”

With local presence, the deal will deliver stronger market know-how and direct access to business opportunities across the UK and Ireland, allowing DESOTEC to serve the rapidly growing renewable biogas industry.

MD and co-founder of Environ, Peter Rowbottom added: “The UK biogas market is set for rapid and long-term growth, and this deal puts us in the perfect position to capture the market and deliver sustainable solutions.”

Beyond biogas, the acquisition will allow DESOTEC to answer the growing filtration demands in the UK and Ireland by leveraging its expertise in providing solutions for clean water, air, and soil, in support of the company’s mission to protect the environment. With an expanded presence, DESOTEC will facilitate the delivery and exchange of mobile filter solutions to all customers in the UK and Ireland, with 24/7 customer service.
