Since 2011 a UK company, Weedingtech, has been developing a range of machines to deliver its patented Foamstream process to tackle problematic weeds without the use of harmful herbicides.
The Foamstream process is a low-pressure solution. It is herbicide-free and works by combining hot water and a biodegradable foam made of natural plant oils and sugars to help control weeds, moss and algae including invasive species.
The foam blanket ensures heat delivered in the hot water stays on the plant long enough to provide the most effective and efficient plant kill in the herbicide-free space. Suitable for use in any weather and on all surfaces, Foamstream is safe for use around people, animals and delicate environments including water.
From the outset, Weedingtech’s primary objective has been to provide organisations with a sustainable solution for the safe management of outside spaces, whilst also protecting the public and the wider environment.
Foamstream already has a global reach and is being used major cities including London, New York, Dublin, Miami, Manchester. Outside of the municipal sector, Weedingtech boasts clients in the areas such as utilities, tourism, education and private/corporate estates – with the Eden Project in St. Austell being one of the more recent adopters.
In addition, Foamstream has been approved for use across the UK, EU and USA as an organic biocide and can be used for deep-cleaning and sanitisation purposes such as to reduce the transmission of harmful viruses like COVID-19 and other pathogens including non-sporulating bacteria and fungi.
As such, applying Foamstream’s extreme heat to hard surfaces, such as park benches, bus stops, play areas and other outdoor areas of high human contact where the virus may linger, will help reduce viral transmissions.
