In general, film for horticulture is available in transparent film, white film, black film and black and white film. But nowadays there is an increasing focus on sustainability in the horticultural sector, so biodegradable film is increasingly used.

Biodegradable Plastic Film

Interest in the use of biodegradable polymers is increasing. Biodegradable polymers are polymers of biological molecules and therefore fully biodegradable. They replace the non-biodegradable synthetic containers. There has been a lot of effort to replace plastic films with biodegradable films. It is an effective measure to solve the pollution caused by plastic film residues. 

Biodegradable films are plastic-based films. Additives are included during the production process. The biodegradable films can be broken down by living organisms, such as bacteria or fungi, with or without oxygen without any impact on the environment.

CO2 Hoses

CO2 hoses can have different goals, such as reducing energy consumption, optimizing the greenhouse climate or protecting a product. In general, film for horticulture is available in transparent film, white film, black film and black and white film. But nowadays CO2 hoses are used to distribute CO2 evenly to the crop. The concentration of CO2 in a greenhouse is important for the crop. CO2 is one of the most important building blocks for plants. A higher concentration of CO2 therefore ensures better growth and development of

the crop. The CO2 is distributed through the greenhouse using plastic hoses. At Royal Brinkman we have a wide assortiment of CO2 hoses.
