The major applications of Oekotech are for landfill waste management.It includes products used to prevent leakage of municipal or hazardous waste in landfills and suitable use of waste. The consumption of these technical textiles products remains limited despite their perceived benefits. With rapid urbanisation, the waste management has because major issue in India and Oekotech applications provide an effective way of managing the waste in an environment friendly manner.

The objective of the workshop is to sensitize stakeholders about myriad applications of technical textiles in agriculture and environmental engineering and to create awareness amongst the stakeholders about the benefits of these items. The Workshop will also focus on various rules/legislations that need to be amended to facilitate the use of these textiles in various applications.
