Brief Description

Description :

The industry feels that there is an untapped stock of husks in the rural areas from where collection is difficult as onsite defibering is not possible. Therefore there is a need to develop a mobile fibre extraction machine which could be taken to the remote villages so that vast untapped potential for utilization of husks from such areas could be tapped. A Mobile Fibre Extraction Machine has been developed that can be taken to remote areas where husks are available for fiber extraction in a simple way.
