100% bio-degradable and compostable farming ropes
Avoiding plastics is extremely beneficial and it is therefore becoming increasingly important. In the agricultural sector, Lenzing™ fibers are used since they are both bio-degradable and compostable.
Thus Lenzing™ fibers create sustainable solutions for agriculture and horticulture:
•Ecological advantages: Farming ropes of Lenzing™ fibers are a botanic alternative to conventional materials. They are made from the raw material wood, and can be composted in a very simple way with the rest of the organic waste. In addition to trouble-free compostability, twines of Lenzing™ fibers are 100% bio-degradable.
•Functionality: The high strength of Lenzing™ fibers allows for a lower specific use of material. Compared to cotton twines, twines of Lenzing™ fibers are thinner in size and they also have a higher strength. The load-bearing capacity of the farming ropes is guaranteed for the period of plant growth in an optimum manner.
•Multiple uses: A broad range of potential applications is possible: Lenzing™ fibers can be used not only for ropes and twines but also in antiweed nonwovens. When it comes to the cultivation of mussels, nets of Lenzing™ fibers represent a sustainable alternative due to their plastic-free processing.
