ALPEX PROTECTION: Test on a textile to optimise composting of waste

02 . 03 . 2021

Alpex Protection, specialised in the manufacture of waterproof and breathable flexible materials, has developed a textile suitable for composting tarpaulins: COSMEEC.

This innovative multi-layer is lightweight (30% reduction compared to a standard PVC tarpaulin), tough (mechanical properties two times better than personal protective equipment), and hyper-breathable (microporous structure).

There are two particularly appreciated advantages: Thanks to optimisation of the pore size, it functions as an anti-odour barrier, and accelerates maturation of the compost (which increases the yield per m²). This new textile, with its ergonomic structure and strength, will thus make it possible to equip composting sites sustainably and ingeniously.
