Serial Number: 4
Name of the Project : Development of Technology for manufacturing of Ramie based jute products
Sponsored by : MoT/JMDC
Abstract : To develop technology for spinning jute ramie blended yarn(8.0 lbs and below) on the jute spinning system.
Highlight :

The estimated progress of work of JTM Project 19 is around 41% which represents development of the Eco-degumming process of Ramie fibre and its optimization in laboratory and Pilot Scale level. Characterization of physical properties of degummed ramie fibre has also been carried out. Spinning of Jute-Ramie blended yarns (80:20), 50:50) has also been initiated at IJIRA Pilot Plant using conventional Jute Spinning system.

The target area of application would be developed of Jute-Ramie blended fabrics for Home Textiles applications which include Drapery, Upholstery, Table covers & mats and home decorative.

As per approved DPR IJIRA would transfer the eco-degumming technology of Ramie fibre to the Ramie growers and concerned technologists of North East Region in near future through conducting workshop/ seminars etc.
