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 bioChar 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 biochar science into legalized and economical industrial practice. The economical biochar processing capacities ranging usually from the small industrial 6500 t/y to medium industrial scale 20,800 t/y throughput capacities.
These biochar 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. Since 2002 Edward Someus is biochar S&T coordinator and key technology designer for large scale EU research projects, involving ten EU countries, including FP7 REFERTIL project 2011-2015 for EU28 standardization and full law harmonization development of the biochar products.
