Coir Geo textiles
Coir Geo textiles commonly known as Coir Bhoovastra is a handmade product commonly used for the protection of land from soil erosion.Coir Geotextile have been found to be effective for run off and erosion control. Geotextile reduces the kinetic energy of rain drops, thus preventing soil particles from being splashed away.Slopes can be stabilized by adding a surface cover of coir geotextile to the slope, excavating and changing the slope geometry, adding support structures to reinforce the slope or using drainage to control the groundwater in slope material. This method has been proven effective, especially in the case of stronger rainfall event.Soil bio-engineering with coir geotextiles finds effective application in Shore line stabilization ,separation application in unpaved roads, railways, parking and storage areas ,Storm water channels , Slope stabilization in railway and highway cuttings and embankments ,Water course protection .Reinforcement of unpaved roads and temporary walls ,Providing sub base layer in road pavement ,Filtration in road drains and land reclamation ,re-vegetation in abandoned mines, preventing sagging of village roads ,Mud wall reinforcement and Soil stabilization
