3R Mission and Strategy

One of the main challenges of the 21'st century is the increased need for sustainability and competitiveness of  agricultural and food production, while safeguarding consumer health, decreasing environmental impacts in agriculture, horticulture and forestry and taking account of climate change. For land based biological resources, special emphasis to be placed on low-input and organic food crop production systems and improved management of resources, with prime concern of optimal recycling and reuse of agro/ food industry by-products and un-exploited biomass resource streams.

Phosphorus is a critical raw material (EU COM (2017) 490) nd strategic key element of the food crop and animal production in agriculture. Phosphorus cannot be substituted. There are no any other materials with high P2O5 content (>30%) known than apatite minerals from phosphate rocks (but this is contaminated with Cadmium and Uranium) or bone char (that is a natural and pure apatite substance). The low toxic elemenent content phosphate rock resources are already exhausted on global level. In 2008 significant 700% price increase happened in the phosphate sector and by 2020 and beyond additional extreme high price increase to be expected. The phosphate is recognized by the EU as critical raw material (EU COM (2017) 490). The EU is >95% is importing the mineral phosphate, most MS 100%, mineral phosphate containing Cadmium and Uranium toxic elements. The new EU Fertilizers Regulation revision law harmonization (2018) provides strict safety criteria for fertilizers (including very low Cadmium content), for which most traditional mineral fertilizers cannot meet under market competitive conditions.

The 3R mission is to provide an advanced, economical and environmentally safe ZERO EMISSION PYROLYSIS PROCESS, PHOSPHORUS RECOVERY and RESOURCE CONSERVATION technology solution, - with  a unique new perspectives for valorised reuse and added value recycling of un-exploited biomass resources into such products like Animal Bone bioChar, biochar, recovered Phosphorous and Nitrogen natural fertilizers, highly demanded for green energy, agricultural and carbon negative environmental applications.

The new generation 3R pyrolysis technology solution is a high added value valorization of the un-exploited biomass resources with wide feed flexibility providing a board range of end-products with the co-production of refined carbons (biochar) and recovered organic Phosphorus fertiliser (Animal Bone bioChar), bio-fuels and recycled liquid Nitrogen fertilizers, all with enhanced overall economy and competitiveness.

The 3R technology is dedicated to provide a cost efficient carbon refining and nutrient recovery solution which is environmentally sustainable for a long term producing added value products  for agriculture,  green energy and environmental product industries, while implementing the waste prevention, environmental protection, resource preservation and sustainable economical growth support concepts. The 3R Zero Emission Carbon Refinery mission meets basic global challenges by providing efficient solution for utilization of un-exploited biomass resources.
