Name of the Project : To find Alternative to Conventional Jute Batching Oil for improving Spinnability and to Produce Non Toxic and Hydrocarbon Free Jute Products
Sponsored by : MoT/JMDC
Abstract : To develop an Eco-compatible Jute fibre lubricant as a viable alternative to conventional Jute Batching Oil(JBO) to ensure eco-friendly processing of jute fibre
Highlight :

Upto October 2009 progress of work in JTM- 01 is around 54% which represents literature and market survey, up gradation of RBO Technology, mini trials at IJIRA Pilot plant for optimization of Eco-lubricant formulation developed followed by two pilot scale trials on Hessian and sacking warp qualities in an IJMA identified jute mill under actual mill conditions as per approved work plan. While carrying out Pilot scale trials due care has been undertaken to eliminate totally the identified limitations of existing RBO Technology as per the DPR
