3R Zero Emission Pyrolysis of Biomass: Biochar and Resource Conservation
Added value recycling and reuse of biomass waste streams for advanced and safe horticultural food crop nutrition and transport bio-fuel / bio-oil productions by integrated 3R pyrolysis, catalytic and biotechnological process.
Traditionally, biomass waste is viewed as an unnecessary and uneconomical element. In the reality biomass waste and by-products are a misplace resource, existing at a wrong place at a wrong time. Recycling of biomass waste and animal by-products by the advanced 3R pyrolysis technology generates new resources and added value products. The objective of the 3R ZERO EMISSION PYROLYSIS PROCESS AND RESOURCE CONSERVATION technology is the added value upgrading and valorisation of animal by-products into safe and high value biochar, bio-oil, soil amendment and nutrition products (Nitrogen and Phosphorous fertilizer) by integrated thermal and biotechnological recycling means.
The 3R zero emission carbon processing understands the language of the Mother Nature and takes lessons from Her. Whatever technical, environmental and/or climate challenge the 3R faces, it is considered that most probably one or more of the world's >30 million creatures and natural processes has not only already faced the same challenge during the past millions of years, but has also evolved effective strategies to solve it as well. The term waste is unknown in the Mother Nature as all and any materials must be processed, recycled and reused in a most efficient way, as simply no any creatures can afford to loose any available materials. Same as the 3R zero emission carbon processing means a total recycling and reuse of agricultural waste and food industrial byproduct materials, "the resources", for conversion into high added value re-fertilization products. In this evolutionary process, the stone age did not ended because there where no more stones, but rather because new - more efficient - options come up, that supported the rapidly developing market demands. As a result, the 3R zero emission carbon processing and biochar products open new technical, economical, environmental and climate solution opportunities, specifically targeted for the temperate climatic zone countries applications in the EU, Australia, USA and Japan.

The INPUT FEED STREAMS are low value animal by-products; such as high Phosphorous content food grade (category 3) animal bone meal and low moisture content manure from herbivorous animals, such as poultry, sheep, rabbit, goat and horse. The OUTPUT PRODUCTS are high quality and safe animal bone char (10,000 t/y) for wide range of agricultural (natural Phosphorus fertilizer with min. 30% P2O5, biochar) and environmental (adsorbent) applications, recycled Nitrogen fertilizer (3,500 t/y) and transport quality green energy bio-oil green (6,500 t/y).
The specific pyrolysis process is based on a horizontally arranged, indirectly heated revolutionary designed rotary kiln, providing reductive thermal decomposition of any biomass up to 850 degree C in vacuum. The zero emission and the highly efficient pyrolysis process add up to comprehensive recycling and the reuse of all material and gas feed streams. Standard nominal capacity is 4 m3/h or 30,000 m3/y (20,000 t/y) throughput. The output natural products are tested and validated for open ecological soil applications by the Soil and Plant Protection Authority. The 3R process provides high feed flexibility: it's efficient for carbon and resource conversion both for animal byproducts and plant based biomass, suitable for temperate climatic zone applications. Although its highly advanced and comprehensive performance, the 3R technology does not contain any exotic technical solutions and materials.
The 3R biomass waste recycling offers economic viability, generates new resources, produces high market demanded natural products and low cost green energy. The 3R organic waste recycling also has a great potential for resource conservation and GHG emission reduction as well. The output products are natural Phosphorous mineral content animal bone char in different formulations, recycled Nitrogen fertilizers and transport fuel quality biofuels. The 3R pyrolysis process is a patented original solution and industrial design, its development is priority supported by the EU since 2002. Field demonstration pyrolysis and biotechnological fermentation plant is available at 3R Pyrolysis Center in West Hungary, while commercial industrial projects are under organization from 2013 and on.
