Welcome to Reiner Schmitt GmbH Brennereitechnik
Our company is located in Weselberg, Germany, and has been your proven specialist for distillery technology, as well as tank and apparatus building, since 1976.
We are focused on the development, construction, manufacturing and assembly of plants and facilities designed for the production of industrial alcohol, potable alcohol and bioethanol.
Reiner Schmitt GmbH Brennereitechnik has developed its expertise over decades, including fields such as welding and sheet metal forming, as well as plant construction in the area of thermal process engineering.
Today, we’re proud to offer you a wide array of products and services.
Our company operates worldwide and runs its own ethanol production plant on company property since 2012. EthaTec GmbH produces industrial alcohol from food waste and manages to deliver natural gas, electric power and fertilizer in a closed and sustainable production cycle.
We’re more than happy to show you our live production plant and technology on the spot! If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out and contact us.
We plan, manufacture, construct and control all of our distillation plants from A to Z. Next to process design and assembly on site we also take care of commissioning and even offer remote maintenance of our plants as a service, thanks to our control technology and software, which is built in-house.
Biogas & Sanitization
Using waste, which is created as a by-product of the ethanol production process, to produce biogas makes the industrial production of alcohol one of the most sustainable processes of the 21st century.
We also offer sanitization units for conventional biogas plants as part of our product portfolio.
All control mechanisms and software for our products and plants are developed within our walls by our very own electrical engineering unit, led by domain experts – that’s how we make remote maintenance a reality for your plants.
Distillation and rectification columns are just one subsection of our pressure tank manufactory. Compressed air tanks, silos and separators are just further samples from this arm of our portfolio, you can learn more here.
Our special constructions are explicitly tailored solutions to their respective area of application and highly individualized to our customers‘ needs, such as cooling towers, mixers, hoppers and curved screens, for example for gluten separation.
Reiner Schmitt GmbH Brennereitechnik has been a long-time partner of the Fachhochschule Pirmasens. In 2001 we built a neutral alcohol distillation plant in their technology center as part of our cooperation. We’ll gladly pay the facility a visit with you.
The Prüf- und Forschungsinstitut Pirmasens e.V. cooperates with us within the scope of the large-scale project „Energiepark Winzeln“ (Energy Park Winzeln), where we’ve taken a significant position in the construction of the entire plant.
