Partnering opportunity

Institute from Latvia offers know-how for development and testing of humic substances


Institute from Latvia develops technologies for humic substances extraction and testing. It offers technologies for humic acid testing with the aim to create soil improvement products. Humic substances improve the productivity of photosynthesis and increase the chlorophyll content in plants, resulting in increased productivity and plant resistance. Institute is offering research cooperation agreement.

Partner sought

Type of partner sought: any organisation (company, R&D institution, etc.)operating in the field of improvement of soil fertility or increase of productivity of plants. Role of partner sought: collaboration in development of specific products and methods for soil improvement and increase of productivity of plants.


Humic substances are organic compounds that are important components of humus, the major organic fraction of soil, peat and coal. It is well known that humic acids increase plant growth and they are effective at low application rates. Humic substances has also technical applications as the heavy-metal binding agents in remediation technologies for removing heavy metals from waste water. Institute from Latvia involved in research of humic substances offers technology transfer of secret know-how for development and testing of new products. The institute has industrial experts and it collaborates with experienced scientists, participate in international scientific conferences and exhibits its products at international exhibitions. The Institute is a member of several local and international organizations. Humic substances are obtained from peat and sapropel with a special cavitation method. This method allows to obtain a highly concentrated and “live” humic solution, which contain soil microorganisms that have a positive effect on soil fertility and plant health. The institute offers research cooperation agreement in order to provide secret know-how technology transfer and develop new products for specific needs.

Advantages and innovations

Advantages of using humic substances in environment: - prolonged accumulation of nutrients and trace elements necessary for growth; - improve nutrient circulation in the living organism (both plant and animal); - regulate plant nutrient and water uptake; - protect from adverse environmental factors and strengthen plant and animal immunity; - improve the productivity of photosynthesis and increase the chlorophyll content in plants, resulting in increased productivity and plant resistance; - efficiently absorb toxic heavy metals and ensure their excretion from the body, thus acting as bioregulators.

How it works

  • Tell us about yourself
  • We’ll discuss with you
  • We put the right partners in touch

EEN help you find the right partner, rather than you going it alone.

Our role is to review and collate the most suitable submissions, and then send them to the client who posted the opportunity. We consult with you, and the client, to make the process professional and easy.

These are live opportunities. Your registration of interest on the site is just like a professional approach to a business at a networking event. To stand the best chance of success, make your submission really sing. Sell why the client who posted the opportunity should work with you. Excite them. Ask questions. Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.
