Earthwool is a real natural product of basalt (volcanic rock basic / lava). The fibers are made by heating and spinning of this rock. With this revolutionary, so called Ecose Technology a formaldehyde-free binder is used. This sustainable technique is particularly environmentally friendly. In this way the desired structure is developed and we deliver a product with ‘healthy’ fiber. The advantage is that the roots do not find resistance during growth and receive more resistance to diseases, pests or mould.
Earthwool is made using mineral wool and a natural binder (ecose), without acetyls or formaldehyde, which makes it a much more accessible substrate for the plant’s roots compared to “normal” mineral wool
