TerraNova®ultra Hydrochar from manure complies with the latest European regulation for use as organic fertilizer

by | Jan 22, 2023 | News

The European Union has adopted a new amendment to Regulation 1069 on animal by-products, e.g. manure or digestate from manure, to reach the so-called “end point” after which such products are exempt from the restrictions of this regulation and can be freely placed on the European market. The aim of Regulation 1069 is to minimize the risk to human and animal health from the use of such products.

As a result, it is now possible to convert manure or digestate from manure into Hydrochar by TerraNova®ultra Hydrothermal Carbonization and to widely use it as organic fertilizer and soil conditioner to replace mineral fertilizers and increase the carbon content of the soil.
