The traditional coir industry in the state of Kerala is facing an acute crisis of fibre shortage. For some time it has been depending on the green husk fibre the major part of which is brought from the neighboring states.

The industry feels that there is an untapped stock of husks in the rural areas from where collection is difficult as on-site defibering is not possible.

Therefore there was a need to develop a mobile fibre extraction machine which could be taken to the remote villages so that vast untapped potential for utilization of husks from such areas could be tapped.

In view of this, Central Coir Research Institute of Coir Board, Kalavoor has developed a Mobile Fibre Extraction Machine that is being demonstrated before the coir industry.
