The International Jute Study Group (IJSG), in a bid to increase the usage of jute, is emphasizing on application of jute geo-textile in construction of roads, highways and to prevent soil erosion.

India has been using geo-textile successfully for quite some time now. Thus the demand of jute in India has increased by manifolds. Observing this opportunity Mr Sudripta Roy, Secretary General, IJSG, recommended the Government of Bangladesh to introduce the same.

In an exclusive interview with Fibre2fashion, Mr Sudripta Roy stated, “The jute fibre is used as a layer which is porous. This allows water to pass as a separator. After decomposition it acts as glue to allow stabilization. The durability of geo-textile layers in the construction of roads and highways is similar to the fully concrete made roads and highways.

“The use of jute geo-textiles for construction of road, riverbank protection and soil conservation is already being used as pilot projects in India by Jute Manufacturers Development Council (JMDC) in six states of India, Specialized mills on geo-textiles such as Cheviot and Gloster in Kolkata manufachzrel soil saver and non wovens. The material acts as a separator and later as binder. This is better than synthetics as it is non toxic.”

Presently, the jute industry of Bangladesh is passing through a rough phase. Although, the country produces jute in abundance, farmers are not getting their proper due. According to Mr Roy, if Government approves this proposal, it is definitely going to have a positive effect on the production of jute and in turn, poor producers will get fair prices as they will be able to sell these, in bulk amount directly.
