TAL to promote technology at GFIA
Abu Dhabi will welcome many visitors from the world of Agriculture next week as it hosts the Global Forum for Innovations in Agriculture (GFIA) conference and exhibition at ADNEC. The event will commence on Monday 9th March for three days, and Technical Absorbents are joining many companies promoting their latest innovations to the market.
Technical Absorbents unique SAF technology creates new possibilities for the development of fabrics that can be used for short and long-term agricultural and horticultural solutions, from hanging basket liners to commercial scale projects, even in areas of low water availability. Such technical fabrics are designed to achieve highly controlled delivery of water and nutrients to root systems, whilst significantly reducing evaporative loss and water seepage. With its hot and dry climate, the Middle East is an area with huge potential for such a technology.
“We have developed and tested a strong portfolio of products for this market,” explained Technical Absorbents Commercial Manager Stuart Coomber. “From liner fabrics for baskets to durable fabrics that can be buried below the grounds surface, our super absorbent technology offers a solution for anyone looking to reduce water usage or have a need to ensure plants don’t dehydrate during transportation. We can supply our technology as a fibre or as a finished fabric.
GFIA 2015 will be the most influential event in the world for all those wishing to contribute to the sustainable agriculture movement, and has created a platform ideally suited to present the latest technologies and services. With sustainability and innovation at its core, GFIA brings together an unparalleled group of potential partners, buyers, resellers, integrators, investors and collaborators.
