Surat firm makes eco-friendly fibre from pineapple leaves

Surat firm makes eco-friendly fibre from pineapple leaves

A private group from Surat, Meher International is using pineapple leaves to make fibre and the yarn can be derived after a long process. Director of the firm, Sumit Agarwal said that for farmers these leftovers are waste and tend to throw them away.

Fashion and textile sector is one of the most polluting industries. Experts suggest several ways to treat the pollution issues caused by the industry. One of the more popular approaches is substitution of chemically produced raw materials with naturally obtained options.

Surat, popularly known as ‘The Diamond City’ and ‘The Silk City’, has many important structures setup for textile production across the city. For a while, traders and stakeholders in the city are trying to experiment with sourcing. Surat is developing a biodegradable yarn sourced from pineapple, birch wood, banana and bamboo. The city had previously experimented with plant-based cupro fibre and viscose rayon.

As per a report, Navsari Agricultural University (NAU) has been devising schemes to market its banana-plant fibre obtained from the plantain’s pseudostem. J M Patel, head of Soil and Water management Research Unit, NAU, told that, plantain stems weighing around 45kg each were earlier considered waste and would actually incur the farmer an additional Rs 15,000 per hectare cost for removal of the eco-trash. He added that, with the innovation of plant-based fibre, farmers can earn from that waste.

The majority of the struggle is polyester, which according to experts is hard to be substituted with a naturally made option, at large. Rajnikant Bachkaniwala, president of MANTRA, a textile research institute said that natural yarns and fibres have been around for some time. These substitutes have to grow in commercial production so as to make it available at customer-friendly prices.

    Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this website.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very hard to get that “perfect balance”
    between usability and appearance. I must say that
    you’ve done a superb job with this. Also, the blog loads very fast for me on Firefox.
    Outstanding Blog!

    I do believe all the ideas you have offered on your post.
    They are very convincing and will definitely work. Still, the posts are very brief for beginners.
    May just you please extend them a bit from next time?
    Thanks for the post.

    Unquestionably believe that which you stated. Your favorite justification appeared to be on the internet the easiest thing to
    be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people
    think about worries that they just do not know about.
    You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined
    out the whole thing without having side-effects , people could take
    a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks

    You actually make it seem really easy together with your presentation however I
    to find this topic to be actually something that I feel I
    would by no means understand. It seems too complex and extremely wide for me.
    I’m looking ahead in your next publish, I will attempt to get the hang of it!
