Project: Development of biodegradable composite plant cultivation substrates
Project description and results:
Main aim of the project was to identify alternative bio-based and bio-degradable solutions for plant substrate material. Methods were developed for mixing components, forming the material, evaluating its performance and degradation speed in compost to test numerous material compositions and strategies. Several novel materials were developed that can be used as horticulture substrates.
