Who We are

Terra Humana Ltd. Company Profile

TERRA Humana Ltd. (since 1989) is a technology intensive company, playing international leading role in the RTD, engineering and full industrialization of the zero emission pyrolysis technology and it’s bio-products. The main specialization is the Bio-Phosphate recovery and high quality biochar processing. Originally the company has been an joint venture with ALSTOM subsidy (Lang Machine Works, since 1870) and became independent organization in 2001. Since 2002, Terra Humana/Edward Someus coordinated and key technology designed multiple international research and development programs (EU FP5, EUFP6, EUFP7, CIP-Ecoinnovation, H2020, see 3R project references) 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 temperatrure 3R Zero Emission pyrolysis and biotech means. Since 2002 Terra Humana is the only one vendor in the EU who is specialized on high nutrient dense ABC BioPhosphate recovery from food grade animal bones.

The company is the original source and inventor of “3R” Recycle-Reduce-Reuse zero emission pyrolysis technology &  ABC BioPhosphate 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: 04.2/102-2/2015). 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 GRIST– to – RECOVERED ORGANIC ABC 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 3 and 2 animal by-products converted to refined bio-oil for bio-energy applications.

By 2019, 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' 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.
