Quality of the production process

UNIMER has two modern plants strategically located along the Italian peninsula in the provinces of Treviso and Ascoli Piceno, for an area of over 100,000 Sq.Mts and a productive capacity that exceeds 100,000 tons per year.

Unimer production process uses industrial systems which have been developed over the years due to significant technical, chemical and agronomic skills, and are constantly updated through highly specialized consultancy with leading plant designers of the Italian and foreign markets, in compliance with health, safety and environmental legislation.
The process flow, which aims for a maximum result with the use of UNIMER fertilizers, is as follows:
There are manifold stages characterizing the production process:

1. Mixing of organic matrices

Previously selected according to rigorous survey at highly qualified laboratories.

2. Bioxidation phase

The mixture dries out gradually with a progressive decomposition of proteins, carbohydrates (cellulose and hemicellulose components) and lignin through the action of micro-organisms, thus originating phenolic and quinone compounds and other components of humic substances.

3. Maturation

The creation of humic substances takes place through resynthesis and polymerisation processes: these are fulvic and humic acids rich in phenolic, carboxylic, ketone, alcohol functional groups, essential in chelating and complexing mineral nutrient elements.

4. Reaction

From organic matrices which are highly humified with carefully selected mineral components,  stable humic acid complexes follow, whereas high nutrient protection is ensured by the bonds between the functional groups of humic and fulvic acids and mineral elements. Moisture is reduced below 25%.

5. Creation of powder, minipellets and grains

To meet the several technical and agronomic techniques with a complete range of formats; their optimal condition gives rise to a physical interaction that is essential for achieving a greater stabilization of complexes and a better homogenization and amalgam of components.

6. Oven drying at a controlled temperature

The last dehydration takes moisture below 10%, thus ensuring the presence of nutritionally helpful substances (and no water) for the finished product, granting its constant features,  excellent management during distribution and storage whilst respecting the European Health rules which foresee  over one hour heat treatment of animal by-products used for fertilizer production (EC Reg. n. 1069/2009 and 142/2011 and further modicìfications and integrations)

7. Heat reduction

The product undergoes a regular phase of heat reduction, by means of a suitable system, before being packaged.
