Rob van der Meer is Commercial Product Manager Growcoon at Maan BioBased Products. Rob responds to customer questions about the Growcoon. In this item, he answers the question: Is the Growcoon biodegradable?
Being biodegradable, the Growcoon really is a product of its time. It is also a clean product, and is produced to ensure that it disintegrates slowly. The aim of the Growcoon is to keep the root ball together, so a rapid disintegration process is not desirable. The Growcoon's degradation process is affected by different factors. The combination of temperature, humidity, bacterial action, and PH value has a major effect on the degradation process of the Growcoon. And that makes it difficult to predict exactly how long the total disintegration process will take. What is certain is that the Growcoon disintegrates rapidly in open ground and especially fast in a composting process. Do you require an accurate indication for your own process? Then contact us for some personal advice.
The Growcoon is a clean product that may be disposed of as green waste.
