Recycling coir fibre waste encourages ecological protection
Jun '09
An ever increasing number of industries, results in a significant increase in the amount of industrial waste that is generated and that too at an alarming ratio.

This necessitates recycling of products. Properties of the coir fiber, waste and cotton micro dust have a content which is dominant in the soil that assists plant growth.

A composite developed with these materials along with the necessary addition of organic nutrients, supplements the inherent nutrient deficiency of the raw materials.

Necessary pre-treatment to the raw materials are given first. Then a hydraulic pneumatic machine is used in making the composite.

Due to the increasing ratio of population, forest cover is gradually falling down. Textile wastes are used as an alternative for soil, and composites are used for cultivating plants and trees.

Properties of coir fibre waste and cotton micro dust possess properties that correspond to that of soil. These properties facilitate plant growth effectively if supplied with additional nutrients.

Industrial wastages affect the environment in a great way. Optimum utilization of these wastages not only solves the problem of disposing it, but also provides an opportunity for eco friendly applications that protects all living beings.
