The food and pharmaceutical industries are using the inner nut, the outside husk is processed in the
Fibre industry or directly at our Coir substrate factories. At the fibre mills the fibre is separated from
the Coir powder. We collect the powder directly after this separation to be stored and processed at
our production locations.
100% of the Coconut is used and because it is a renewable product, coir substrates are very environmental friendly products.
All our production locations are equipped with RO systems to be able to minimize the use of water during the production. At this moment our Partners are investing in water treatment plants to reduce the process water. Our goal is to reach an almost closed water system at the end of 2011.Transport
Even after full de-hydration, Coir substrates can be easily hydrated again . This unique feature enables us to dry our products and compress it to reduce the volume that will be transported. With the normal compression rate we can ship 5 times the volume of Coir substrate in 1 shipment. After the customer receives the products he can add water to re-hydrate and re-volume the products.
The last 20 years Elfferich Commodities has proven to be innovative.
We will continue to be innovative, we continue to develop new and alternative production methods to make even better and cleaner/greener products.
