Foamstream is the award-winning solution in the herbicide-free space for controlling weeds, moss and algae, brought to you by Weedingtech. Foamstream works by harnessing the power of thermal technology. It kills weeds using the precise application of hot water and a biodegradable, environmentally-friendly foam made from natural plant oils and sugars. Watch our process video here to see exactly how the Foamstream process works.
Used throughout the municipal, utility and amenity sectors, it provides companies, councils and operators with a safe, effective and affordable method of herbicide-free weed control. In addition to weed control, it can be used for all manner of street cleaning tasks, including gum removal.
Foamstream won the award for ‘Best New Product or Innovation’ at LAMMA 2012 as well as the award for ‘Design and Supply of Amenities’ at EDGE 2012. Trialled by a variety of contractors at different sites throughout the UK, its weed-killing properties have started a revolution in the safe management of native and invasive species.
The Plant Protection Products (Sustainable Use) Regulations which came into force in the UK in 2012, place a duty on landowners to reduce the use of traditional chemical herbicides. Increasingly, there is heightened pressure from the public on municipalities and companies across the world to act more responsibly towards the environment. Legislation is being passed all the time to further reduce the use of traditional chemical herbicides and pioneering cities and communities across the world have taken the lead in setting a ‘green’ example by banning herbicides entirely for the safety of their inhabitants and local environment.
Weeds can’t be left to grow unmanaged, therefore there is a great need for alternative methods of weed control to provide an answer for the herbicide-free question. Foamstream provides a safe, cost-effective and sustainable solution to weed control in the market which is reinforced by its ever increasing global base of customers from North America, right across Europe.
