Coco pith is collected by vacuum suction – 1-2 cm thick layer of peat is extracted from the surface of the bog. Before collecting milled peat, 2 cm thick layer of peat torn from the stratum is turned over several times and dried. And, only after this, the peat is extracted with a special vacuum device and piled into the stacks of about 2,000 cubic metres each. Later, the peat is transported from the piles to factories for the manufacturing and packaging of products. Milled peat extracted by this method contains more fine particles in comparison with block peat. Milled peat is subdivided into light and black. Main extracted fractions: 0-7 mm; 0-20 mm; 0-40 mm.
