Dry soil in the urban environment will cause growth problems for young trees. The AquaMax water reservoir is a functional solution to keep the trees healthy. During the summer period it has an added benefit of protecting the trunk against mower or trimmer damage whilst in the winter it will protect against gritting operations.
The well-known water reservoir made from HDPE (high density polyethylene) is now also available based on Biobased Plastic. Biobased Plastic is produced from the waste from sugar cane and is also known as green polyethylene. By using the waste from sugar cane a new and sustainable alternative to standard polyethylene can be offered.
The green polyethylene material can be mixed with standard polyethylene. This enables that the Biobased root barrier can even be recycled in the same recycling process as the PE root barriers. The base material can therefor still be reused many times over.
The Biobased water reservoir has the I Am Green Logo. This logo may only be used for products based on natural materials. Using green polyethylene helps to reduce greenhouse gasses. In this way we hope to contribute to the development of a sustainable Biobased green city.
