GeoJute and Jute Geotextile




GeoJute - Jute for the Future 

Jute - one of the oldest industries in India, has traditionally been used for packaging.  However its versatility is only coming to light now as the world looks on for this natural fibre to take over with the ideal solutions for the modern world.  Be it in conserving the soil and the environment.  The time has come for this natural fibre to take over with the ideal solutions for the modern world.  Be it in conserving the soil and themodern world.  Be it in conserving the soil and the environment or in applications like civil engineering which are essential for the progress of cultivation.

  Diversification of Jute Fibres

 Jute Geotextiles comes in two varieties - woven and non-woven fabrics.  The distinguishing features that make it more eco-friendly are
      High moisture absorption capacity Flexibility
     Drainage Properties
 GeoJute finds Application in -

  • Erosion Control

  • Seperation, filtration and drainage in civil engineering works

  • Agricultural Uses


Jute Based Consumer Items


Geo Jute & Jute Geotextiles



  Food Grade  Bags

Jute Reinforced Composites


Jute in Fashion

 Advantages :

  • Abundant Availability

  • Superior Drapability

  • Greater Moisture Retention Capacity

  • Lower Costs compared to Synthetic Geotextiles

  • Ease of Installation

  • Bio-degradable Properties 


Geotextiles have seen unrivalled growth with a forecast by the United Nations international trade centre (UNITC) of 1,400 million m2 produced by the new millennium Europe and north American markets each account for 40% with the remaining 20?% attributed to Japan Asia and Australasia The main applications are separators in earth works. drainage and  linings as controlling soil erosion and establishing plant growth.As 
 Jute accounts for such a small proportion of geotextile use in the west there is enormous scope for increased usage. Most land managers in Europe are generally unaware of the relevance of jute products, as they consider textiles as the main output of the industry, jute accounts for less than1% of total geotextile use , despite the technical advantages and low cost of jute geotextiles,  which has been demonstrated by research and the results of full –scale use ,A promotion programme which aims to provide product information in readily useable form has been initiated by UNITC, UNDP and JMDC. Conservation land managers, landowners and landscape architects who use jute in environment projects will see immediate improvements in the rate and quality if vegetation growth ,as well as greatly reduced material costs.

Two seminars in London and Geneva last year brought together key jute producers with invited  researchers, environmental consultants, suppliers, contractors and specifying authorities .specifications were agreed which jute geotextiles would need to meet to satisfy environmental and geotechnical engineers.  the obvious uses in erosion control were generally known, but it was interesting to note that composite products involving jute in combination with synthetics, or jute together with coir,can offer optimum solutions in other areas.

 Some applications are clearly suited to jute, but the material characteristics need more elaboration.  Other applications are more easily satisfied by the other types of geotextiles.
