3R-BioPhosphate Management

Mr. Edward Someus (inventor, owner)

Edward Someus

Swedish environmental engineer with core competence of ecological recycling and added value reuse of unexploited biomass by specific and advanced high tech 3R pyrolysis (carbon refinery) and biotech means. Education: University of Lund in Sweden (1972 - 1978), graduated in 1978, M.Sc., Natural and Environmental Sciences.

The 3R key competence and specialized expertise is based on international team works, this is why we reached far. Comprehensive zero emission pyrolysis technology (3R), its refined and natural products, most importantly bio- recovered Phosphorus and nutrients. The innovative 3R providing high added value recycling and economical reuse of agricultural and food industrial by-products used by the organic/low input farming and adsorbent sectors. The specialized expertise is covering fields from applied science through RTD and industrial engineering into full industrial applications and market take up management. The high level of scientific knowledge is combined with industrial engineering and economical field application management, including process scale up, regulation follow up and EU-MS-REACH Authority permitting of pyrolysis technology and products.

Edward Someus is a Swedish environmental engineer from the University of Lund, with +30 years core competence and specialization on biochar science and technology, industrial manufacturing, product formulations and agricultural field applications under market competitive conditions. Specific zero emission pyrolysis technology developed (“3R” Recycle-Reduce-Reuse technology) for carbon refinery processing and material/nutrient added-value recovery, most importantly Phosphorus, such as extraction of high P2O5 concentrated innovative ABC Animal Bone Char organic fertilizer from rendering industrial animal bone by-products.

The work field is covering area from the matured phase of applied research into full industrialization of carbon refinery systems to convert nutrient recovery science into legalized and economical industrial practice. The economical biochar processing capacities ranging usually from the medium industrial 2,000 t/y to large industrial scale 20,800 t/y throughput capacities.

These nutrient recovery development works are based on the EU regulations and Member State legal permits for biochar processing, product safety, accredited analytics and applications for the interest and benefits of SME farmers. Edward Someus is a nutrient recovery S&T coordinator and key technology designer for large scale EU research projects, involving ten EU countries, including FP7 REFERTIL project 2011-2016 for EU28 standardization and full law harmonization development of the biochar products, and NUTRIMAN networkings https://www.nutriman.net.

Edward Someus was a member of the EIP-AGRI (run by the European Commission DG Agriculture and Rural Development) Nutrient Recycling Focus Group.

Edward Someus has been selected as a Member of the EU DG Grow-JRC STRUBIAS (struvite-biochar-ash) Expert Group, a sub-class of the Commission Working Group on fertilisers.
