Why Carbohort?

  • we are a producer, not sales agency
  • products ideal for soil and soilless cultivation
  • products 100% natural and organic, ideal solution for organic food production
  • products can be used even in desert areas due to water retaining properties of the brown coal granulates
  • in accordance with the principles of corporate social responsibility, we take full responsibility for the substrates after finished cultivation
  • cleaner air in cities due to brown coal’s heavy metals absorption property
  • brown coal deposits originating exclusively from Poland
  • brown coal is free from pathogens and does not contain substances harmful to plants, however it contains a significant amount of micro- and macroelements.
  • brown coal maintains fertility of soils



Why we suggest our substrate
instead of the
mineral substitute?

  • usually used for one growing season, otherwise disinfection is necessary
  • problems with handling after cultivation, unfit for further use
  • waste disposal is expensive and problematic - wool fibers do not decompose!
  • large quantities of water are required for production
  • an artificial product, devoid of biological life
  • causes a systematic reduction of soil productivity
  • torn and pressed mineral wool fibers break and cause pollination for many years, and consequently deposited in humans / animals lungs through inhalation
  • mineral wool dust is a very strong allergen - it causes dangerous reactions to health and life
  • mineral fibers cause mechanical skin irritation, leading to primary dermatitis and secondary skin damage caused by bacterial infection
  • the similarity of the physical properties of mineral wool fibers to asbestos fibers (carcinogenic product!)
  • The most often ingredients used for the production of mineral wool are basalt rocks together with blending additives: modified phenol - aldehyde resins - a chemical industry product
  • for the production of 1 ton of mineral wool, it is necessary to use 1100 - 1300 kg of basalt rock with additives, and to melt the basalt, huge amounts of energy, usually in the form of coal, must be delivered, which as a result causes atmospheric pollution with greenhouse gases - CO2
