Area of Technology:Coir

Title of the Innovation: Biochem treatment for softening of coir fibre

Brief About Innovation

Area of Disclipne :Coir 

About the process : 

For manufacture of Softened coir fibre

The disadvantage of mechanically extracted fibre is its inconsistent colour and harsh texture due to the variation in maturity of husk. The Biochem treatment for quality improvement of machine extracted coir fibre is carried out in open areas. It is a zero effluent process and cost effective. The treatment of coir fibre with selected strains of bacterial cultures in Biochem solution is capable of degrading aromatic compounds which are phenolic in nature yielded a fibre exhibiting a higher degree of light fastness and a softer feel which is advantageous to women spinners.
