The unique motto of the paper is to prove the feasibility of a new, technically efficient and financially competitive method for the use of fresh coir fiber for the production of environmentally safe, high performance construction materials & wood replacement products. The paper demonstrates the potential of the application of a specific technology for the production of high quality coir fiber boards, by making use of the specific chemical composition on the coir fiber, in particular its high content of lignin. The paper has also focused on the demonstration of the feasibility of the production of coir fiberboards through laboratory- level process development and pilot-scale testing/production of coir boards, including performance testing and other quality testing compared to wood. Certain disadvantages such as high water absorbsion, Fire resistant etc. are eradicated by addition of certain chemicals such as borax. Advance manufacturing techniques to produce high quality fiber boards are discussed to replace wood and save mother earth from deforestation. In India No. of tees used up every day by the carpentry team is about 1.44.In a year of roughly 300 working days equals to an annual consumption of 432 trees per carpenter team. If 500 carpenter?s teams across India are considered, this would relate to an annual consumption of 216000 trees. Corresponding to the above one unit of coir based boards with a capacity of 40 cu.m per day will be able to save approximately 5000 trees a year. This means that 50 such units spread across the country would virtually save every tree that is cut for timber. This Paper provides detail description of staring a Coconut Fiber Board Industry and their good cause towards biodiversity and deforestation. Technical and financial/ economic viability of the technology developed has been demonstrated and documented in such a manner that the technology can be applied at an industrial scale in a commercial environment in Developing Countries like India to save the biodiversity of the country.
I am currently pursuing U.G Engineering Pre final Year at Government College of Technology. Presented technical papers at national level symposiums. This is my 1st paper in an international conference. I am a trainer at Bigbodhi academy of robotics & creative learning-Coimbatore, India
