Sandy Chan and Catherine Paul, researchers in Water Resources Engineering and Applied Microbiology at Lund University, have investigated the sand filtration and discovered that old filter with microorganisms is a major explanation for why older plants work better than new. Further confirmation that a biofilter keeps over time.
Raatec:s BioBox has now been in operation in many places during 18 year with only satisfied customers and that this article describes also our filters keep the generations.
In other words, a good investment that keeps a long while.

spring (and almost summer) have come to the southern part of our country. On Falsterbo ongoing renovation of holes 4 and 5. Here, a self-mixed sand that becomes a seedbed with peat and MCP zeolite.
– “Do not know if it germinates directly faster but it will be stronger and better.”
See and hear more of what Håkan Lindberg says:
In a study conducted by Courtyard & animal Health, funded by the Swedish Pig Entrepreneurs Foundation via Swedish bank research, MCP has peat and zeolite as additive to slaughter pig diet evaluated.
The study showed lower ulcer problems, drier manure and higher phosphorus content.
Read the study at grisforetagaren.se
MCP zeolite contains more than 40 macro- and trace, The largest proportion of these are silicon oxide, aluminium, iron, calcium, magnesium, sodium and potassium. Gödslen have higher nutritional- and commercial value and providing increased power in agriculture.
MCP feed additive
With 0,5% – 1% MCP added in the feed of nitrogen absorbed compounds, ammonium is bound and less ammonia is formed. You get better air in the environment and the stables with healthier animals and staff.
Uptake of proteins increases which promotes the growth of the thighs- and chest muscles.
The weight increase but feed consumption increases.
MCP provides increased efficiency of feed.
MCP is used as a feed additive in the world
In the rest of the world used the MCP zeolite in animal husbandry for a long time with the only good experiences.
MCP Zeolite provide benefit for the environment, quality and economy.
With MCP Zeolite in the litter increases the effect.
We mix MCP Block Peat, purest form of peat, high capacity to absorb liquids, and lower the pH bind ammonium. You get a drier litter, even lower fotpoäng, lower ammonia content in the air.
Investing less than 9 penny per chicken, profit more than 60 g increased weight.
Carcass weight increases by just 60g without feed costs increase. Which means that MCP Zeolite does not cost you anything.
Then you get a lower ammonia content, lower fotpoäng, drier ströbrädd. You also get a fertilizer that contains more nutrients and commands a higher value if you sell it or use in their own farm.
Provperiod 44 weeks
Number of eggs per hen and egg weight increased egg weight increased from control group to 65,7g 66,6g
The number värpta eggs increased from 285,6 to 291,4 (5,8 more)
The total weight for 44 weeks increased from 18,75 – 19,39 kg up 0,64 kg delivered äggvikt.
Eggshells showed increased strength.
Moreover achieved halving the ammonia content in the air.
Can be used in organic production.

Raatec today has recently signed an 3 year contract with Ystad Municipality to develop the use of MCP & Trichoderma to green areas. Together we will work to enhance the green surfaces of Sandskogens sports. The goal is to achieve a more sustainable lawn, reducing the use of pesticides and nutrients to reduce nature.
For 7 years ago planted several pots of MCP and as many without, to do a little unscientific test. The pots have received as much love, water, sol, wind and other things they might encounter in a villa garden on the outskirts of a little town.
The images below show how the pots with MCP (right of the picture) have stored up and distributed food and water in a better way.
RHP certified Block peat picked up and dried on pallets under tarps to protect against contamination and dry naturally in the wind and sun. During the winter it freezes and then be picked in early spring to the factory where it is sifted and stored under roof. See more of the film on the benefits of block peat over peat harrow.
December i Ystad. See how it went with the A-football field where the month of May was the MCP zeolite.
Review statements "Torvutvinningens and peat, the climate and the environment" M2015 / 03518 / Nm
EPA has completely overlooked the Swedish Animal Welfare and the Swedish local environment when they developed their report regarding torvutvinningens and peat, the climate- and environmental impact. Swedish peat give:
The use of peat in pig- and poultry houses more than halves the ammonia emissions from stables. Peat also reduces the smell of stables and provide a better environment for both humans and animals. Please see the movies below to take part in the attempts at Bollerup in Skåne.
Furthermore, the Swedish Peat unique features as feed or avvänjnings peat-peat for piglets. Peat stabilizes piglet magflora and in trials, both in Denmark and on Bollerup in Scania, able to demonstrate the reduced need for antibiotics and support-rations with zinc has almost completely been ruled out. The declining use of antibiotics is positive for all, as well as people and animals reduces the risk of antibiotic-resistant bacteria such as MRSA. As regards feed peat can be no other peat out of the question than the Swedish. Since Sweden is one of few countries that does not have Swine fever it is also practically the only country with the right kind of turf that may come to question when it comes to feed peat. Behandlingen av Svensk blocktorv, both at harvest as the processing is unique and ensures that the Swedish Animal Welfare maintained by a wide margin a welfare who also started to export abroad.
Otherwise consider RaaTec to the Environmental Protection Agency report describing peat extraction and use of peat in a very one-sided manner, which means that the report can not serve as a basis for a political decision. Instead of giving a comprehensive picture, the report has a consistently negative attitude to peat extraction and use of peat, which means that the entire investigation is misleading. EPA has not analyzed the possibility of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by replacing fossil fuels used today with peat. Nor has it taken into account the efficiency of energy peat has been with the co-firing of biomass. EPA concerns not the positive effects that the cultivation of peat and peat litter means for greenhouse cultivation and animal husbandry. EPA recognizes no solutions to address emissions from drained peatlands, but proposes instead an exorbitant tax on energy peat, removal of certificates, consider peat as a fossil, and advocates and even to Sweden instead of peat to import fossil carbon.
Regarding the climate impact of peat will oxidise away during the next hundred years, society must take responsibility. When the State contributed to the financing of the drainage of the marshes, bogs and lakes, the aim was to create more arable- and woodlands for the benefit of society. But the knowledge about the greenhouse effect was not then known. Today's farming business or peat companies should not bear the responsibility for these emissions.
We therefore believe that the state should provide for a measure- and funding plan to reduce emissions from drained peatlands. The use of peat, For example, to replace fossil energy, and recovering energy, culture- and sprinkle peat is an important and great way to utilize peat from drained peatlands earlier while those addressed. EPA believes that the horticultural peat and peat bedding is comparable to the energy peat in terms of climate impact. We do not share this view. Sprinkle Peat absorbs urine and binds ammonia in stables and thereby reduces the secondary nitrous oxide emission. Peat is more effective than other litter, which means that the amounts of litter can be reduced. It also means that the amount of manure, to be carried and spread, reduces.
When the litter peat used to horses, horse manure can be spread with conventional manure spreaders and be useful in crop production. The options means that the manure is incinerated or landfilled. In Sweden there are almost as many horses as dairy cattle and a large part of them are now on peat, which is both climate- and environmentally friendly.
When peat litter spread as manure, helps to build soil carbon storage. This is done via torven as such, and by peat contributes to higher yields. Compared with straw, peat built twice as much carbon in the soil in a 60- year experiment at SLU, Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences. We mean extracting cultivation- and sprinkle peat is a great way to utilize peat from previous drained peatlands.
Peat create long-term jobs at those places in the country where they are needed - in rural areas. Peat Erna employs many companies, both small and large, and machine operators, mechanic, managers and people working in the transport and handling. If the Environmental Protection Agency's proposal would be lost around 1200 full-time jobs and about 2500 basic seasonal employment. The jobs created indirectly by means of the use of peat shall not be forgotten. trade, restaurant, service post office and pharmacy and petrol stations get reduced customer base of peat use deleted as the report advocates.
Environmental Protection Agency's proposal, mainly the removal of certificates, the introduction of the Energy and devaluation of the role of peat as a product of energy and cultivation purposes, would have devastating consequences for the peat industry and for us as a company. It would also have negative consequences for landowners to influence what they want to do with their peatland.
