EG WEED BIO UB is 100% decomposing and composting biological ground cover fabric that the plants can use as nutrition at the end of its lifespan! EG WEED BIO UB is made of biofibres and natural fibres (=biomass).
Biomat is a non-woven mat that is based 100 % on renewable materials and made with wind energy.
Applications: even ground and slopes. Weed and surface erosion prevention.
After some time, the plants will take over the planting area and prevent the weeds from growing. At this point, the mat does not need to protect against sunlight anymore. The plant roots balance the base structure of the green area and prevent erosion.
Our biomats are part of the EU Life+ case study follow-up project. The case study sites are in the region of Espoo, Helsinki, and Vantaa, and the total follow-up surface area is 5400m2. There are similar case study sites within the EU, and they can be followed at http:/www.renew4gpp.com/weed-control/pilot-site-espoo-helsinki-vantaa/
At the moment, Hortaflex 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6, stronger than the other biomats in the biomat product family, is being tested at the moss roof green roof site of the EU Life+ case study site at the Meilahti sports hall green roof area, see http://www.luomus.fi/fi/viides-ulottuvuus-viherkatot-osaksi-kaupunkia.
