Casing Separator (PATENT PENDING):
A new revolution in the mushroom industry. Mush Comb and Sikes Champignons made it possible to separate the mushroom casing from the compost. This is done during emptying of the mushroom growing rooms. They are the first to introduce this new possiblity.

A summary of some of the advantages of this development:
• An instant advantage for the Dutch grower are lower transport costs. The champost and compost is not allowed to unload in Netherlands, the casing is allowed. By separating the casing from the compost the casing doesn't need to be transported to Germany but just around the corner on the farm. At the same time more space is left in the trailer so more compost can be transported to Germany.
• The possibility to re-use casing soil. Now this is divided from the compost the road is open for this development. Our partner Sikes Champignons is already far advanced in the development of re-using the casing soil.
• The compost which is brought to a burning oven has a higher efficiency. Because the wet casing is out the remaining compost burns better which gives more energy then when burning the champost.
• The possibility to also re-use compost, no matter in what way. An example can be to burn the compost on your own farm. This to raise energy with a waste product.
• Reduce your carbon footprint.
• Less sales of champost. The grower gets less dependant on this market. And less sales can become an advantage. Because when there is a shortage of champost on the market then this brings more perspective to get a good price for your champost.
• Possibility to increase your emptying speed.
