How to use..?
Ever wondered how to use your GRPL? Tapegear has created an inspiring little video showing you countless options.
A fertiliser, AgriFerBW, is also a by-product from the Biowert production process. Our photo shows one of “our” farmers from the countryside surrounding the Brensbach plant spreading AgriFerBW on his meadows. The meadow grass harvest is used in its turn to manufacture Biowert products.
The new 2012 harvest is chaffed in the field. Then it is ensilaged at Biowert’s plant.
Grass plastics from the Odenwald is in nationwide demand – Biowert increases production capacity fourfold
Due to high demand for the environmentally friendly composite material AgriPlast, Biowert has now invested over 1.5 million euros and commissioned a new production facility at the end of 2021. The construction was completed within a year, so that an additional production area of 500 square meters is now available. Biowert has also invested in a new production line with high-performance granulation, material feed and extraction. The expansion has quadrupled the production capacity.
«The current times do not allow us to rest on our achievements,» says Biowert CEO Jens Meyer zu Drewer. «At Biowert, we are committed to sustainability and are constantly working to further reduce the industry's carbon footprint and dependence on petroleum.»
