The 3R industrial pyrolysis process provides safe output products, targeting carbon negative biochar, recovered phosphorus fertiliser and bio-energy applications.

  • ABC (Animal Bone Char) BIO-PHOSPHATE:  safe horticultural biochar product for natural recovered organic Phosphorus supply (>30% total Phosphate as P2O5), plant growth promotion and bio-control against soil borne plant pathogens in low input- and organic farming cultivations.  The feed selection is all depending on the availability, logistics and production objectives. However, when natural Phosphorous is the prime economical valorization aim, food grade animal bone must be used as input feed. To validate ABC BIO-PHOSPHATE effects, several open field and green house cultivation tests have been performed in DE, NL, IT ,IL ,HU ,SI , DK under different temperate climatic and soil conditions. Both the 3R zero emission pyrolyis and nutrient recovery process and the ABC Animal Bone bioChar products in open ecological soil environments are EU Authority permitted. ABC (Anima Bone Char) BIO-PHOSPHATE product horticultural application permit number and status: 02.4/102-2/2015 (original biochar permit 02.5/67/7/2009 issued in 2009 after four years efficiency and safety tests and CLP upgraded in 2015 by National Food Chain Safety Office, Directorate for Plant Protection, Soil Conservation and Agri Environment).

  • 3R BIOFUEL:  Bio-oil and green energy products, made by refinery of the crude pyrolysis oils.





... why you need :

  1. Phosphorus is strategic key element of the food crop and animal production in agriculture. NO P = NO Agriculture = NO Food.
  2. The EU is >95% is importing the mineral phosphate, most MS 100%.
  3. The phosphate is recognized by the European Commission as critical raw material with high supply risk in 2014 and 2017.
  4. Mineral phosphate containing Cadmium, Uranium and other toxic elements.
  5. Growing food demand, growing phosphorus demand.
  6. Finite phosphate: the low Cadmium and Uranium content mineral fertilizer resources already used up and in the future only contaminated resources are available.
  7. Geopolitical risks: imported Phosphate is an critically important issue for the national security already now. All farmers need phosphorus, yet just 5 countries control 88% of the worlds remaining phosphate rock reserves.
  8. An inefficient food system: large amount of P to waste streams, no recovery.
  9. Cheap fertilizer: a thing of the past for farmers.
  10. In the near future very drastic P price increase to come (In 2008 it was >700%).
