Jute Geotextiles

Jute has traditionally been used for packaging, specially sacks. Its  unique physical attributes  have opened up new avenues for diversification, especially in the light of global concerns for the environment. Jute Geotextiles (JGT) are one such diversified products of jute which have proved to be highly effective in addressing soil-related problems in the field of civil engineering.


Project - CFC/IJSG/21

Development and Application of Potentially Important Jute Geotextiles (CFC/IJSG/21)

 

     

This project is funded by the Common Fund for Commodities and the OPEC Fund for International Development

     

The project will lead to the commercial acceptability of potentially important jute geo-textiles suitable for use in two identified end-uses namely soil erosion control and rural road construction in the context of conditions prevalent in Bangladesh and India.
