Title: Geotextiles : a specific application of biofibers

Author: English, B. W.;

Date: 1995

Source: Research in industrial application of non-food crops. I, Plant fibres: proceedings of a seminar, May 1995, Copenhagen, Denmark. Lyngby, Denmark : Academy of Technical Sciences, [1995?].:p. [79]-86.

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: Geotextiles are any textile like material used to enhance soil structural performance. Biobased geotextiles are used for short term (6 months to 10 year) applications where biodegradability is a positive attribute, such as mulching and erosion control. Fiber options for biobased geotextiles include cereal straws, coir, jute, kenaf, flax, sisal, hemp, cotton, woodfiber and others. This report documents research the USDA Forest Service is conducting using biobased geotextiles to increase tree seedling survival rates, establish vegetation, and control erosion.

Keywords: Geotextiles, Fibers, Utilization, Soil stabilization
