Compostable horticulture twine

Industry and application area

Compostable twine/ rope for the horticulture industry for growing tomatoes, cucumber and bell peppers.

As the twine is fully industrial compostable it saves a grower significant costs in the waste stream handling. At the end of the year the plants have to be shredded and disposed. If conventional plastic twine is used the plants cannot be composted as the plastic twine is intermingled in the plants.

The performance of the twine is comparable to the conventional twine and brings no disadvantages.

Sustainability aspect

  • 100% Industrial compostable according to EN 13432 
  • 100% Bio-based
  • Very high UV resistance 
  • Relative high creep resistance (for PLA)

Current status

The horticulture distributor Royal Brinkmann sells the product exclusively under the brandname BioValent
