BIOFILL IN THE AGRICULTURE SECTOR: A WIN-WIN
Biofill resin is perfect for use in the agro-industrial sector. The product is therefore frequently used for agricultural applications in sectors such as horticulture, sports and golf, and roof gardens. A win-win for anyone who wants to work in a way that is durable and environmentally friendly.
The special agricultural variant of Biofill consists of resin that absorbs water, subsequently gradually re-releasing it to the plants that grow with their roots in the rigid foam. The system is maintenance-free, self-regulating and so exceptionally economical.
THE ADVANTAGES OF BIOFILL FOR AGRIBUSINESSES
- biodegradable and environmentally friendly
- an inert and sterile material
- extremely lightweight
- increases the available nutrients (potassium and nitrogen)
- water-absorbent: up to 60% of volume.
This product increases the pore volume, the moisture capacity, the aeration, the wet and dry weight and the root quality.
THE BIOFILL GREEN RANGE
Biofill has developed various products on the basis of Biofill rigid foam:
- Fytocell: for greenhouse horticulture and private gardeners
- Fytofoam: for agriculture and horticulture
- Hydrocell: for roof gardens
FYTOCELL FOR GREENHOUSE HORTICULTURE AND PRIVATE GARDENERS
Fytocell is perfect for use in greenhouse horticulture or by private gardeners who want to maintain their vegetable garden. The product ensures a greatly improved water/air ratio, providing increased resistance to dehydration.
It can be used for both indoor and outdoor planting, and you can also mix Fytocell with your own (potting) soil. The product therefore has many applications:
- hanging pots on a balcony or terrace
- laying out a new lawn or vegetable garden
- roof gardens
- vertical gardens
FYTOFOAM FOR AGRICULTURE AND HORTICULTURE
Fytofoam is used for agriculture and horticulture, lawns and golf courses. It is completely biodegradable and has a high absorption capacity.
The low weight and stable spongy structure make Fytofoam the ideal product for improving the soil structure when laying out sports fields or golf courses.
HYDROCELL FOR ROOF GARDENS
The total roof area in Belgium is becoming greater and greater. Many flat roofs are now being transformed into small roof gardens, so-called ‘green roofs’.
Hydrocell is used in laying out these roof gardens. The durable foam has a very long lifespan (25 to 30 years) and a high compression strength. The low weight also ensures that the roof can bear the weight of the soil and the plants.
