Ellepot develops a new propagation paper for organic production

0

The new propagation paper, Ellepot Organic 2.0, consists of 100% fully compostable and biodegradable materials. The new patented technology for the paper is the result of six years’ intense product development. A development process to ensure environmental compliance at every stage of the paper’s life cycle, including material selection, handling, testing, & degradation

With a decomposition time of 6-8 weeks, the new Ellepot Organic 2.0 is ideal for producers of organic crops and crops with a shorter propagation time. The paper is made from wood fibers sourced from FSC® certified forests and other controlled sources, and is furthermore approved by the Soil Association in UK. The new product is also approved as input for organic crops in Denmark, Sweden & Canada. Soil Association is one of the world’s leading and oldest certifiers for organic crops, assuring conformity to the highest standards of environmental and social responsibility. Ellepot expects to have the Ellepot Organic 2.0 certified according to the “Home Compost” and “Biodegradable in Soil” in 2020.
