As reported IA Umdis company Mikogen Ukraine, in May, plans to launch the cooling system mycelial compost. Thus the company will solve the problem of overheating of the compost for delivery to farms in the hot season.
As you know, one of the main problems mycelial compost supplies in the summer – overheating when mycelial compost temperature during transport rises above 30 C, which is detrimental impact on yields have fallen into this situation mycelial composts. This happens when at loading mycelial compost trucks for delivery to the compost mycelium mycelial temperature exceeds 20 C. The mycelial compost self-heating, which together with the hot weather leads to the fact that after many hours of travel until mycelial compost mycelium temperature considerably exceeds allowable limits. Mycelium, which was obtained by the mycelial compost should have significant reserves of refrigeration capacity to return mycelial compost temperature to the extent necessary soon enough.
Installed on Mikogen Ukraine will reduce the temperature of equipment shipped mycelial compost up to 10 C, if such a reduction is necessary given the weather on the day of shipment and the distance that must be transported mycelial compost. “We looked at various options for the cooling systems and stopped on the proven cooling way carbonic acid Such systems have been tested and used in compost production in the world in terms of Ukraine to cool mycelial compost is particularly important given that the distance at which it is transported, is very great..” – he says consultant Mikogen Ukraine Farid Fakhrutdinova. Cooling is carried out with snow, which is produced using carbon dioxide.
The equipment will be installed the German company Linde Gas Ukraine is already running similar projects in the Netherlands, Poland, Hungary and other countries. Earn system must already May. Mikogen will be the first manufacturer of mycelial compost in Ukraine, install the cooling system. Cooling costs the company incurs.
