Hydroponics, by definition, is a method of growing plants in a water based, nutrient rich solution. Hydroponics does not use soil, instead the root system is supported using an inert medium such as perlite, rockwool, clay pellets, peat moss, or vermiculite.
One way of meeting future food needs could be hydroponics – growing plants without soil, instead using a nutrient-rich solution to deliver water and minerals to their roots. It's already being used to increase farming outputs and grow plants in habitats that wouldn't normally sustain them.
How does ECOSE® Technology work?
By converting bio-based materials into an inert polymer through a proprietary process, ECOSE® Technology is used to create an exceptionally strong binder that not only bonds mineral wool insulation strands together but also many other materials.
This revolutionary scientific discovery eliminates the formaldehyde and phenols found in traditional binders used in various industrial processes.
