The largest environmental concern for the polymeric foam industry is waste handling. Currently there is no other solution than landfill or incineration. Imagine these products can be replaced by biodegradable alernatives with a tailor made biodegradability.
Foamplant is the first player to introduce bio-based and biodegradable technical foams. The first product the Groningen based company developed is Growfoam, a patent-pending plant substrate for seedling germination and plant cultivation. The dimensionally stable and clean plant substrate is produced from biodegradable biopolymers and natural additives.
The substrate plugs offer multiple benefits: they are clean, cost competitive and biodegradable under natural and composting conditions,.
