Efanov et al. 2008: New technology and products of deep chemical work of peat
New mechano-chemical methods for deep chemical processing of peat have been developed and humic prepa- rations have been prepared on his basis. The oxidation of peat using hydrogen peroxide in an environment of water ammonia or sodium hydroxide results in the formation of humic products with a high output oxidizer with high biological activity. The resultant humic preparations are stimulators of growth and humus fertilizers that raise grain productivity 25-35 %.
