TTERRA Humana Ltd has been established in 1989, as Swedish-Hungarian joint venture between the Swedish environmental/biochar engineer Edward Someus and the ALSTOM Power subsidy Lang Machine Works (since 1868 as Central Europe's largest industrial boiler and carbon processing manufacturing organization. Terra Humana Ltd. has been independent SME organization in year 2001. The TERRA company mission is to develop, engineering design and manufacture of novel bio-waste and biochar based technologies and organic waste treatment systems on a EU level for advanced bio-char processing by pyrolysis and biotech means for the industry and agriculture. Since 2002, Terra Humana/Edward Someus coordinated and key technology designed multiple international research and development programs (EU FP5, EUFP6, EUFP7, CIP-Ecoinnovation, H2020) in the specific field of carbon refinery and phosphorus recovery.

The core competence of the company is the ecological recycling and added value reuse of unexploited biomass by specific and advanced high tech 3R pyrolysis (carbon refinery) and biotech means. Terra Humana Ltd. is the only one vendor in the EU who is specialized on high nutrient dense bio-phosphate recovery since 2002 from animal bones. The company is the original source and inventor of “3R” Recycle-Reduce-Reuse zero emission pyrolysis technology & ABC (Animal Bone Char) BIO-PHOSPHATE product developments.The company is the only one biochar vendor in Europe, with official and accredited Authority permit to use qualified and eco-safe biochar in open ecological soil environment (permit: 02.5/67/7/2009, CLP upgraded 2015). The company also received Authority permit for organic phosphorus recovery plant full industrial installation and operation in West Hungary at Biofarm Agri Research Station (FES/01/0851-33/2015 that is uniting permits from ten different Authorities).

The 3R ZERO EMISSION pyrolysis process and NUTRIENT RECOVERY innovation started up in the late 80's and the RTD programmes accelerated after 2002, when the European Union priority selected the 3R development programme (see 3R project references). Over the past 20 years the company has taken up a unique leading role in the field of international RTD and specialized industrial engineering activities of pyrolysis, biochar and animal by-products high added value valorization. The company coordinated, key technology designed and proven industrial demonstrated multiple international RTD programs in the specific field of carbon refinery, phosphorus recovery and high added value utilization of un-exploited biomass resources, targeting two main product groups:

1 BONE MEAL – to – RECOVERED ORGANIC BIO-PHOSPHATE FERTILIZER: concentrated bio-phosphate recovery from food grade animal bones and utilization of the output products in the rapidly growing market sectors of organic/low input farming and adsorber water treatment sectors.

2 PROCESSED ANIMAL PROTEIN – to – LIQUID BIO-FUEL:  Category 2 and 1 animal by-products converted to refined bio-oil for bio-energy applications.

By 2018, the R&D stages were successfully completed, finalized and the 3R technology is ready for market uptake. We are providing an economical, highly efficient and environmentally safe '3R ZERO EMISSION CARBON REFINERY' pyrolysis technology solution with a unique new perspective for recycling and reuse of the rapidly growing un-exploited biomass resources into high added value natural products.

The new 3R ZERO EMISSION pyrolysis process and NUTRIENT RECOVERY technology opening new technical, economical, environmental and climate protection opportunities. In this context the 3R provides high value financial and non-financial benefits for all stakeholders who are receiving extraordinary values from the reached high level and tangible business objectives. The 3R key performance indicators are impressive and replicable but still conservative estimated.

We are looking for qualified and solid industrial partner(s) with objective driven determination to make profitable green tech business with the 3R added value biomass-to-innovative natural fertilizer and/or biomass-to-liquid bio-fuel green energy industrial programmes, resulting high economical outputs even at a short term.

If you have any questions and/or a business proposal for the utilization of this advanced  3R ZERO EMISSION pyrolysis process and NUTRIENT RECOVERY technology, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Welcome for partnership. Sincerely,

General manager
Terra Humana Clean Technology Development, Engineering and Manufacturing Ltd.

3R Pyrolysis -Bio-Phosphate - Nutrient Recovery- Biochar- Agro-Biotech Field Demo Center

3R Pyrolysis - Nutrient Recovery - Biochar - Agro-Biotech Demo + Training Center for valorization of un-exploited biomass resources

“3R Pyrolysis” Center for Phosphorus recovery,  biomass valorization, renewable energy, and innovative agricultural biotechnology demo - training

The 3R pyrolysis center combines  applied science, industrial engineering and practice. TERRA HUMANA is the owner of the fully permitted industrial site in West Hungary at Biofarm Agri Research Station (Google Maps: ), which is dedicated to innovative and advanced agricultural, environmental and industrial technology field demonstrations under different EU programmes. The specific works include pyrolysis technology (carbonization, torrefaction) and biomass added value utilization processes, with commercial objective driven production of bone charcoal (ABC), biochar and innovative natural BIO-PHOSPHATE fertilizer. The field demonstration of the advanced 3R design and innovative technology is bridge over practical science with clear industrial application orientation, engineered scale up design development and economical commercialization. The 3R site installation and operations are Authority permitted, including official Authority permit for specific biochar production and application for open ecological soil environment use.
