Humintech is a German technology enterprise, based in Grevenbroich, Rhineland, directly in the heart of Europe’s biggest lignite-mining region. Since the beginning of the 70’s former open cast lignite mining fields were recultivated in Germany. Since then Humintech produces and develops humic acids based products for agriculture and other sectors like animal feed, environmental and industrial applications. Humintech ties in the scientific research of humic acids and their usable properties, which has a long tradition in Germany and which began with their first description by the chemist Franz Carl Achard. The company belongs to the World’s leading suppliers of humic acids based products derived from highly oxidized lignite (Leonardite) and distributes its product range in more than 60 countries worldwide.
