Using paper pots is your guarantee for a safe environment. The papers pose no harm to the environment, and the paper pots will decompose in the soil when planted directly in the field.
With paper pots, you decrease your carbon footprint while also optimizing production due to easier handling and less waste – meaning that you have not plastic pots to handle, remove, pick up, or dispose of.
Studies also show that you get up to 40% faster planting.
We have a wide assortment of Ellepot papers for every crop type. Explore our newest technology for organic propagation and find the Ellepot paper that fits your crop type.
Ellepot Organic 2.0 for organic propagation: The new, patented technology for the paper is the result of six years’ intense product development. A development process to ensure environmental compliance at every stage of the paper’s life cycle, including material selection, handling, testing, & degradation.

The market demands products that degrade fully and harmlessly in the environment. At Ellepot, we use internationally recognized standards and certifications to verify that our products degrade safely and efficiently in an aerobic environment.
At Ellepot, we produce propagation papers that are degradable and made of wood fibers from well-managed, FSC™-certified forests and other controlled and renewable sources.
Ultimately, Ellepot papers are certified to a range of well-known industry certifications and standards.
We purchase all our raw materials from selected partners and suppliers under long-term and exclusive contracts based on the special features that give our products their high quality and specially required characteristics.
The fine wood fibres used in the Ellepot papers are sourced from responsibly harvested FSC™-certified forests.
Ellepot quality control is your security and guarantee that we always supply a fully tested, well-documented, uniform, and high-quality propagation paper – all the way from raw material to finished Ellepot Propagation Paper.
The Ellepot quality control system includes stress testing of raw material flexibility, as well as air permeability, resin application and decomposition tests. These tests ensure Ellepot papers and membranes maintain high and uniform quality and meets the requirements of our customers. The Ellepot quality is essential for our successful ongoing cooperation with our customers, and – equally important – also to support the future development of the Ellepot system and Ellepot technology.
Using Ellepot paper is your guarantee for a safe environment. A thorough testing and documentation program is forming the basic outline target for all Ellepot Papers. It is not just a paper that will degrade in a requested period of time. Every content and ingredient in the paper is analysed and evaluated.
A 3rd party Microbiologic Laboratory at The Danish Technological Institute conduct a thorough analysis on all our papers. These analyses help us evaluate the impact on the environment.
We also use the well renowned agricultural institute SEGES to evaluate the analyses according to the EC directive 86/278/EEC, on the protection of the environment, and in particular of the soil.
SEGES statement: “The Ellepot papers pose no harm to the environment. The paper pots will decompose in the soil when planted directly in the field soil.”
Ellepot verifies that our products degrade safely and efficiently in an aerobic environment, and confirms that materials are not building up in the environment to harmful concentrations before degradation occurs.
