The manufacturer has invested 79 million rubles in a line for production of stone wool substrates.
The manufacturing facility for the production of stone wool substrates will be established on the territory of Zavod Techno Corporation in the city of Zainsk (Republic of Tatarstan). The preparatory work for organizing the production operations of new product type began in April 2020, and the line will be put into operation in September this year, upon completion of commissioning.
The volume of substrate production will be regulated in line with demand, the maximum annual design capacity of this is to reach 40 K cubic meters.
A new substrate production facility in Tatarstan will allow us to expand our market and strengthen our presence in the Volga, Ural and Siberian federal districts, as well as organize export operations to Kazakhstan. We can reduce logistics costs and make our products more affordable to consumers both in the center and beyond the Urals,comments Vasily Tkachev, head of Mineral Isolation TechnoNICOL.

The product line is equipped with automatic high-tech machinery, which has to ensure high quality standards and product sustainability. The product range of 126 items of heat-insulating materials produced by Zainsk Zavod Techno will be enriched with seedling blocks and Speland vegetation mats. This is the second TechnoNICOL manufacturing facility for the production of stone wool substrates after Ryazan facility.
Plant growing on mineral wool substrates originated in 1969 getting increasingly popular since that moment. The hydroponics methods and technologies for growing plants are constantly developing, allowing for efficient water and energy consumption, avoiding chemicals for soil disinfection and getting high yields even in the permafrost areas.
Stone wool substrates made it possible to develop vertical gardens and suspended structures highly-demanded in crowded cities and public spaces.
After several cycles of usage, basalt wool substrate can be completely recycled, which is in line with a closed-loop economy and minimizing our environment footprint.
In the Getliņi EKO eco-greenhouse, where about 25 thousand plants are grown on stone wool, we went even further by setting up lighting and heating with energy from waste disposal.
A unique eco-greenhouse has been set up on the largest solid waste landfill in the Baltic region.
