OxiHumin – manufacturing leonardite

Fraunhofer UMSICHT institute and HUMINTECH GmbH are research partners in a project called OxiHumin. Regionally available lignite or byproducts of briquet manufacture are materially used and harnessed for the manufacture of humic substances-based products.

What makes the project so innovative is that brown coal / lignite with a relatively low humic acid content are mixed with microorganisms. By this, the coal is biochemically oxidized, e.g. to amend its applicability as a soil additive.

Two recent reports (German language only) are addressing the collaboration between Fraunhofer UMSICHT and HUMINTECH: A press release by Fraunhofer (https://www.umsicht.fraunhofer.de/de/presse-medien/2017/oxihumin.html) as well as an article in the newspaper Lausitzer Allgemeinen Zeitung (https://www.lausitzer-allgemeine-zeitung.org/projekt-oxihumin-die-synthetische-herstellung-von-leonardite).

The project is funded by the European Union and the state of North Rhine-Westphalia.
