The Growcoon 'Progressive' has now achieved 'OK Compost Home' certification. Issuing body TÜV Austria confirms that Growcoon PROGRESSIVE breaks down completely "at home" on consumer compost piles. This ensures that the Growcoon (used by growers for propagating plants) is suitable for any compost pile. In a private garden, for example. This is because it leaves no waste, residue, or microplastic behind. Thus, it hasn't any negative effect on compost quality.
The Growcoon has held the 'OK Compost Industrial' certificate for many years. This applies to both the more stable REGULAR type and the rapidly decomposing PROGRESSIVE type. The difference between 'Industrial' and 'Home' certification standards is the composting environment. The 'Home' certification is oriented to the rather inconsistent degradation factors in garden compost piles, such as moisture and process temperatures. The decomposition process is, therefore, usually slower and more difficult compared to industrial composting plants.
