Water absorbing ideas at Greentech

In June, the Rai in Amsterdam will open its doors for its exhibition dedicated to horticulture. The biennial exhibition – GreenTech – Amsterdam is in its second year and is one of the main promotional platforms for international horticulture technology. UK-based SAFTM (Super Absorbent Fibre) manufacturer Technical Absorbents, will join over 100 exhibitors at the event and will be displaying an array of innovative fibre and fabric technologies that aid efficient water management.

The event – which will take place between 14th to 16th June – has been designed to revolve around three crucial themes: water, energy and bio-based. Technical Absorbents will be in Hall 9 closest to the water pavilion and will be promoting its range of SAFTM, nonwoven and woven fabrics, yarns and tapes, which allow users to achieve optimum nurturing and growth conditions whilst effectively reducing overall water usage.

“SAFTM creates new possibilities for the development of fabrics that can be used as both temporary and long-term plant root watering systems, even in areas of low water availability”, explains Product Development Director Dr Mark Paterson. “Such fabrics are designed to achieve highly controlled delivery of water and nutrients to roots, whilst significantly reducing evaporative loss and water seepage.”

“We have developed a portfolio of products for this market. From liner fabrics to durable fabrics that can be buried below the ground's surface, our super absorbent technology offers a solution for those looking to reduce water usage or have a need to ensure plants don’t dehydrate during transportation.”

“Wherever there is a requirement to manage water and nutrient delivery in a controlled and environmentally safe way, we can help devise a solution. At Greentech we will have a team of development specialists on-hand to introduce visitors to our technology and meet about specific projects if required.”

Technical Absorbents will be on stand 09.304. To book a meeting in advance, email sales@techabsorbents.com.
