Bloomfield Hills, MI (PRWEB) July 01, 2013
The Acme Group is proud to announce its line of completely recyclable Agrifabrics. "ACME AG makes recyclability and zero-landfill affordable for farmers, greenhouse owners and horticulturists on any scale." said Matt Utley, Director of Sales.
A sample offering of Acme’s technical AG textiles include:
Ground Cover/Landscape Fabrics - Ideal for blocking moisture and repelling weeds
Plant Protection Cloth - Plant protection fabrics used in the early spring and late fall to extend the growing season in slightly inclement weather.
Erosion Control Fabrics - Erosion control fabrics provide soil stabilization and protection in a multitude of diverse environments
Winter Protection Textiles - protects your plants, annuals, and vegetables from severe cold, frost & freezing temperatures.
Plant Plug Textiles - Developed specifically for large-scale greenhouse operations in automated planting/germination systems.
All of the above products are completely recyclable. No worries about disposal or landfill fees. Acme specifically engineered all of their agricultural textiles to be a part of a cradle-to-cradle process that allows used material to be cleaned, recycled and made back into useable products.
"Now commercial growers are offered an alternative to putting their used textile waste in the ground,” added Utley. "Instead of heading to a landfill, the materials are recycled back into usable products."
In a typical application, Acme will deliver the textiles to a grower, and set up a system to reclaim them when their usefulness is over. They set up a customized system to harvest the fabrics, and take them back to their partner company, Preferred Filter Recycling. Their world-wide experience in recycling fabrics is extensive, including filtration, industrial, food processing and manufacturing applications.
