Carbohort is a Polish producer of ecological substrates for soil and soil-free cultivation, as well as natural humic acids. It is the only enterprise in the world that produces substrates from 100% natural and organic raw material.
Carbohort is a family business that uses only natural resources of lignite localized within the territory of Poland. The enterprise itself was established to bring up the idea of new quality of fruits and vegetables cultivation. The innovative substrate we have invented allows us to contribute to overall quality improvement of produced food, and maintain the positive influence on the natural environment
In association with the Research Institute of Horticulture in Skierniewice we were able to invent the substrate of future. We already have some remarkable results in many various climatic conditions, such as Poland, France, Great Britain, Morocco and the region of Persian Gulf
Please check our products: ecological substrate Carbomat for soil and soilless cultivation and a nutrient for the plants Carbohumic, that improves soil properties (humic acid).
The world we live in changes very dynamically. Environmental pollution, deteriorating food quality, and thus our health, climate change... in our opinion, the situation we are in is dramatic and requires our immediate intervention. Thinking about future generations, we must pay more and more attention to our closest surroundings. We must demand more not from governments, public and private institutions, companies, but above all from ourselves. After all, the environment is a common good, a property of all humanity and we are all responsible for it to the same extent.
The company Carbohort, producing natural products for growing plants based on lignite, meets all these challenges. Our mission is based on five foundations - directions in which we want to follow.
- Bottom-up initiatives aimed towards improving health through consuming healthy food
We want to mobilize people to own even the smallest crops; home gardens or on the roofs of buildings, herbariums on the windowsill or terrace, vegetable gardens in schools - in other words, everything that will allow you to feel the satisfaction of growing your own tasty, healthy and organic food. We want to refute the stereotype that having your crop is as tedious and time-consuming as it normally seems to us. Not any more. Only by eating our own products, we are absolutely sure about their quality.
- A paradigm shift regarding the use of coal
We want to change the way of thinking, show that coal is involved not only in burning and emission of CO2 into the atmosphere, and thus accelerating global warming, but also in cultivation of plants, which is directly related to the absorption of this greenhouse gas. While planting as many plants on lignite as possible, we contribute to the reduction of global carbon dioxide e
- Environmental protection through use of means neutral to nature - soils, rivers, groundwaters
Currently, there are many phenomena that have a very negative impact on the surrounding natural environment, especially soils. One should mention at least uncontrolled and excessive urbanization, development of high-emission transportation or soil degradation as a result of intense human activity. All this result in the area of arable land in the world keeps shrinking by around 1% annually. It is worth recalling that 100-500 years are needed to produce 1 cm of soil in natural conditions. That is why it is so important to:
- conduct proper agricultural management using mainly natural fertilizers, only then artificial fertilizers and plant protection products,
- prevent erosion and restore soil use values by enriching the soil with humus, afforestation of wastelands and land melioration,
- prevent soil pollution from municipal sources - limiting the amount of waste, running a proper economy (waste segregation, composting, hazardous waste collection) and construction of sewage treatment plants,
- limiting industrial sources of soil pollution - using modern environmentally friendly technologies and proper post-production waste management,
- soil cleaning of toxic substances and deacidification of acidified soils,
- limiting the takeover of land for development.
- Fighting climate change
Climate change is a global problem, with serious ecological, social, economic, political and revenue-sharing consequences, and represents one of the greatest challenges for humanity in this century. Probably the most severe consequences will fall on developing countries. Many of the poor inhabitants of our planet occupy areas particularly vulnerable to the effects of global warming, and their livelihoods depend largely on natural resources, such as agriculture, fisheries and forest resources. As of today, they have no other means of subsistence or resources, that allow them to adapt to the effects of climate change or face catastrophic situations. Therefore, in order to prevent the growing pressure of migration and emerging social unrest, it is so important to allow the population to remain native in their current places of residence, inter alia by conditioning areas not yet used for cultivation, including desert areas.
- Change of habits in greenhouse and field cultivation
We believe that there are no shortcuts in food production. In the pursuit of profit, cost reduction and crop aesthetics, we have made compromises that will have a negative impact on our health and the environment around us in the long run. We want to motivate as many food producers as possible to take responsibility for the health of other people and the environment in which they live. We also want to encourage citizens to decide mostly on local products, thus avoiding long-distance transportations and mass fruit and vegetable factories.
„Earth does not belong to us. We borrow it from our children."
Let us change the future together!
