Desch Plantpak:

Eco-friendliness the main theme at the IPM in Essen

At the 2019 IPM trade fair in Essen from 22 to 25 January, Desch Plantpak is presenting a complete range of eco-friendly products, each of which responds to demands from retailers and consumers.

Recover is Desch Plantpak's answer to the requirement for better separation of plastic products during waste processing. Recover products destined for Germany have a striking blue colour, while those for the English market are in a distinctive taupe grey. All Desch products are made from recycled plastic and can be recycled again, making them completely circular. Recover products facilitate this process even more.

The D-Grade brand has been added to, and now consists of D-GradeBIO, D-GradeFIBRE and D‑GradeEVO:

  • With 4 stars, D-GradeBIO has the highest TüV Biobased certification, reflecting the fact that more than 80% of the materials used to make these products are biobased. All these products can be composted industrially, and are certified according to TüV OK compost Industrial. The D-GradeBIO range now includes an 8-cm flower pot especially designed for hydroponic cultivation.
  • D-GradeFIBRE consists of a range of packs and trays based on paper pulp.
  • D-GradeEVO is completely new. The pots in the D-GradeEVO range are made from green waste, and are 100% biodegradable. They can be placed in the ground with the plant and its compost, and decompose in the soil naturally.

In addition to Recover and D-Grade, Desch Plantpak is also presenting a novelty wall. It contains, among others, the Nora XL, the 27-cm Grow&Go pot with extra compost and water capacity, and the new Mayca Epla decorative ornamental pots in 17-cm, 19-cm and 29-cm versions which now complete the Mayca range. Another novelty is the 38171 export tray which maximises the carrying capacity of 11.5-cm orchid pots. 6 trays fit on a layer of a Danish cart, so 60 plants in total per layer. The trays have drainage holes in their bases, and an arched structure which increases strength with less material.

Finally, Desch Plantpak will be focusing on the plant passport at the IPM. There will be one available for every visitor at the stand, along with the latest edition of Colour Your Story and the catalogue.
