Eco-friendly coco coir production is growing in Mati
Nov '10
Coco coir is biodegradable and eco-friendly. It has drawn a large number of European markets as well as markets in other nations which support eco-friendly technology.

Coco coir is used in a number of products in Japan and China such as mats, mattresses and geo-textiles, which is meant for checking the problem of soil erosion. It is exported to these two countries as a raw material.

There are three plants manufacturing coco coir in Mati, which is located in Mindanao. The joint output of these three plants is likely to fill 10 container vans every month. The production of this new exportable product has contributed significantly to the local economy.

These plants have also been successful in generating a number of jobs of the people. Each of these three units involved in extracting coco coir has employed minimum 40 people.

The dry weather that continued for long in Mindanao in the first six months of the year has resulted in low coco coir production this time. However, its volume can be doubled without much effort.
