We are the stewards of the earth

In the 2000's, scientists at the TU Dresden / Germany invented a revolutionary natural soil enhancer based on lignite. In 2012 NOVIHUM® TECHNOLOGIES GmbH was founded to bring this great product to the market.

With the help of venture capital partners, the European Union, and an international team  of soil, plant, and production experts, NOVIHUM® TECHNOLOGIES GmbH built its first production plant in Dortmund / Germany to produce on an industrial scale.

Today, the NOVIHUM® TECHNOLOGIES GmbH has grown to over 20 employees and is still growing. We successfully serve customers in Europe and North America, and elsewhere. 

We want to make the world's soils better.

Right at the heart of Europe and close to Germany's biggest lignite mining area – our production site in Dortmund is where we produce NOVIHUM® for you.
