“"As an application manager at Phormium, I bridge the gap between the market and product development. The theme of sustainability is no longer new, but it will only become more important in the coming years. As a producer of climate screens, Phormium can and wants to make a significant contribution to reducing the energy consumption of the sector. There is still much to be gained."“
Jesse Verbeke, Application Manager
Innovative screens and ground covers for agriculture and horticulture
Phormium creates climate screens without frills. The focus is on producing and developing screens that benefit companies in the vegetable, fruit, and flower cultivation sectors. The aluminum night screen, PhormiTex Noctis Thermo, is a prime example. It is the most energy-saving night screen in the industry, allowing the grower to save an additional 7% on the energy bill.
Phormium is also the only manufacturer of climate screens with an 8-year warranty, but in reality, the screens last much longer. This reduces the need for short-term screen replacements, which is a first step towards sustainability.
In addition to climate screens, Phormium also produces the 100% biodegradable ground cover 'Duracover' used in landscaping. Duracover is produced exclusively from PLA, derived from corn starch.
Why Horti Footprint Circle?
Phormium as Horti Footprint Circle member
Phormium has the ambition to reduce the impact of global food production on our planet's ecological system. Through efficient operations, we aim to emit less energy and waste as a company. By producing high-tech climate screens, we strive to limit the energy consumption and CO2 emissions of the horticultural sector.
Participating in Horti Footprint Circle allows Phormium to quantify the impact of current and future generations of climate screens on the CO2 emissions of an entire chain. By engaging with other companies, new ideas can emerge that may lead to new sustainability initiatives within our own company and among other companies.
