Production Process

In Projar We are manufacturers of coconut substrates. Our company controls the entire Golden Grow production process: from the selection of raw materials to their arrival at the customer hands. Therefore we can ensure the highest quality and always meet the expected delivery deadlines. In addition, Projar has two manufacturing plants in India and Sri Lanka, which enable us to be always at full capacity, despite weather conditions.

How is Golden Grow manufactured?

1. Acquisition of mature shells

We make sure that the coconut supplied to us by local productions is of the highest quality as a result the final product is also.

2. Processing of shells

Coconut shells can be processed in a machine called Decorticator, where Coir Pith and coconut fiber for substrate mixtures are obtained, or chip machines that cut the coconut into layers and then into small pieces.

3. Aging

For oxidation to take place appropriately, up until a stable point, the coconut must be stored outside. This aging process takes up to three to six months depending on the type of raw material we want to obtain.

4. Washing

According to customer needs, the product can be processed with washed raw materials to adapt the electrical conductivity to the required levels.

5. Drying

The raw material is transferred to the drying floor, where it is spread out to dry on a concrete floor, which prevents contamination of the coconut. At this stage, good planning is essential to ensure enough supply during the rainy season. In addition, the key to our success is that we have different factories in different locations with different climates. Therefore, when we cannot stockpile raw materials in one of our production centers because of the weather, we are still at full capacity in another factory.

6. Screening or refinement

During the screening the fine powder is removed (screen plant) also the small stones (Air Suction Screen) that might be in the raw material is removed. As a result we get to select only the desired particle size.

7. Mixing process

At this point we elaborate mixtures requested by the client. The product manufacturing is done just before the compaction process and packaging.

8. Compaction

The final product is compacted into different formats (blocks, bricks, discs, plates or easyplanter) so that it can be palletized in the most optimized way possible.

9. Packaging and palletizing

Finally, the product was again subjected to a quality test to ensure it is in excellent condition. Then, it is packaged according to customer needs.

10. Loading and reception.

The finished product is loaded into containers and travels to the customer’s home. Our technical sales team will follow the order, ensure proper reception and offer advice and after-sales service.
