Composting is the conversion of organic wastes into high-quality humus. Through systematic controls these materials can be returned to the earth, completing the cycles of nature and improving the soil to which it is applied. TenCate TopTex™ compost protection fleece is an important tool for optimal composting.


  • TenCate TopTex™ maintains optimum moisture conditions by diverting rainfall away from the surface, and by protecting from drying through sun and wind.
  • TenCate Toptex ensures proper aerobic decomposition. It allows the necessary gas exchange and ensures more optimum temperatures throughout the outer layers of the piles.
  • TenCate TopTex minimizes leachate and nutrient losses by diverting rainfall away from the windrows and therefore minimizing the incidence of leachate.
