Kerala to set up new coir spinning machines

The new UDF government in Kerala will be commissioning a new state-of-the-art automatic coir spinning machine as a part of its 100-day action plan. This was announced by the State Coir Minister Adoor Prakash.

The machine, developed by the National Coir Research and Management Institute (NCRMI), has a capacity to produce about 60 kg of superior quality coir yarn in eight hours, the Minister said. The yarn so generated would be ideal for making handloom items, he added.

The government plans to set up NCRMI developed spinning machines at a minimum of five places each in both Alappuzha and Kollam districts of the State. The 100-day action programme also includes the establishment of a coir bed factory at Beypore by the end of this month and a powerloom factory at Kanichukulangara in Alappuzha on August 31.

The government has also announced that it will inaugurate road construction projects using coir geotextiles within 100 days. For the purpose, the Minister asked the panchayats to actively cooperate as the target roads for the projects will be the ones that come under the jurisdiction of the panchayats. The technical know-how about the utility of coir geotextiles in various fields will be provided by the NCRMI, the Minister stated.

To increase the domestic and overseas market for coir and coir items, the State government has selected two locations for developing them into model coir villages. Speaking about the shortage of coir fibre in the State, the Minister said that the government would consider importing it from Sri Lanka and the Philippines.
