Pilot Facility for Efficient Coir Processing and Quality Control (FIGHF/24)

 

The objective of the project is to undertake operational research and development for improved fibre extraction techniques and for the development of standards to be used for quality control practices. The project will set-up a pilot facility, demonstrating optimum processing practices which can be adopted by the small-scale fibre processing units which are dominant in the sector. Improved production (increased quantities and higher quality) is to be matched with improvements in the working conditions and production environment currently prevalent, ultimately resulting in higher levels of profitability at the bottom-end of the coir production chain.
