Joining forces to supply the North American market with HDPE floating rafts is a further step toward a waste-free future for the greenhouse industry. As new distribution partner, Hort Americas will play a key role in introducing these rafts and educating the market.

Bas Dirven, inventor of HDPE rafts, highlights the benefits of this collaboration: "Our goals align well to improve the sustainability and efficiency of horticultural practices. Compared to EPS, HDPE rafts have higher yields per m2 with less water and energy due to their shape. Besides better insulation properties and cleaning capability, the rafts last significantly longer. Being fully automated, they are an ideal product for smart agricultural environments."

Chris Higgins, co-founder of Hort Americas, adds: "Our goal remains to offer sustainable products, and we believe that these rafts for water cultivation are currently the best option. Offering HDPE rafts aligns with our aim of providing more environmentally friendly solutions to the market, while also being a more profitable long-term investment than EPS rafts."

This collaboration enables growers to switch to a more sustainable, cost-effective solution that supports higher yields, reduces the risk of yield loss and minimize environmental impact. We continue to focus on innovations. The latest roll container system combines DWC, NFT, and ebb and flow systems, providing plants with direct access to oxygen and nutrients. Space is maximized in controlled environments, improving efficiency and turnover without root extrudates.
