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 120,000 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. BIOXIDATIVE  PHASE

The accurate oxygenation of the organic matrices allow their processing and the formation of  humic substances precursors.
 

2. MATURATION

The formation of humic substances takes place through resynthesis and polymerisation processes, with fulvic and humic acids rich in phenolic, carboxylic, ketone, alcohol functional groups, able to react with mineral nutrient elements.

 

3. MIXING

The highly humified organic matrices are mixed with the other organic and mineral components, by means of  computerized controll systems.

 

4. REACTION

The efficacy of the reaction process is based on the properties of the humic substances to effectively combine with the mineral components and therefore ensure high nutrient protection thanks to the bonds between the functional groups of humic and fulvic acids and mineral elements.

 

5. MINIPELLETS, GRANULES AND GRAINS

Once a homogeneous amalgam of all the components is obtained, the production of minipellets, granules and grains takes place. Their  extremely small and regular sizes, superior compactness, smoothness and spreadability guarantee the best satisfaction with their use in the modern mechanized and precision farming.
 

6. OVEN DRYING AT A CONTROLLED TEMPERATURE

The product is then sent to the industrial dryer to undergo a heat treatment of dehydration and sanitization.
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 modifications and integrations).
 

7. HEAT REDUCTION

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