Geo-textiles manufacturing unit to restart operations
Nov '09
A geo-textile manufacturing company which had shut down operations, due to lack of orders is once again planning to restart the company. Geo-textiles or cocnet as it is called in local parlance can be used in the fortification of slopes to prevent landslides.

This was divulged by the newly appointed President of CIIF-Oil Mills, Mr Jesus Arranza and which is located in Maco and is the biggest geo-textiles manufacturing unit in the country, set up at an investment of P100 million, but was shutdown three years back.

The geo-textiles plants in the country closed down one after another despite a Presidential order, which directed all national and local government agencies, to use coco peat or coir dust and coconut-fiber materials for soil conditioning and erosion control.

The objective behind the Presidential order was that, apart from controlling soil erosion, the use of coir will further provide additional income to coconut farmers and generate more jobs in the countryside, but due to unknown reasons the order was never implemented.

“We can derive several benefits from the use of geo-textile. It comes from indigenous materials, a lot cheaper than other alternatives, easy to handle is and labor-intensive and hoped that the Presidential order would be implemented in full spirit henceforth”, the President said.
