Extraction of Natural Fibre from Banana Plant

The use of “Banana” fibre for textile and other purpose as natural material is a new concept for India.

Parama wants to set up 8 units of fibre extraction from Banana. Banana fiber extracting machine will be promoted among self help groups. PARAMA will procure a Banana fibre extraction machine, which can be easily operated, by the rural labour and gives a maximum production output. This machine will reduce drudgery. Fibre production will increase 4 to 5 time compared to manual process. Presently, waste banana stems pose problem of disposal and are available almost free of cost in all over West Bengal.

SITRA is a Non profitable institution, sponsored by The Ministry of Textiles, Govt. of India, and organized by Department of Science & Technology, Government of India will help Parama by supplying machinery and catering technical expertise. SITRA had carried out extensive study on the extraction technique for non-conventional fibres and use of such fibres for the making of wide-ranging fabrics – women inner garment to industrial fabrics to simple mop cloth.

Many follow-up projects can be taken up further in this district on the basis of this fibre production. Among them Production of hand made paper, and many small handloom and handicraft units may arise in future. This small and medium industries will create a huge employment opportunity in this district.

Production of Vermi Compost Unit

Parama wants to take-up a project of Vermi Compost unit with 100 HDPE Vermibed size of 96 cftr (12ftx4ftx2ft).

Wastes are nothing but misplaced resources. A large volume of organic matter is generated from agricultural activities, dairy farms and animal shelters which are usually dumped in corners where it putrefies, usually emanating foul smell. This valuable resource can be utilised by properly composting it into a value-added end product called manure. The chief objective is to compost organic wastes not for the disposal of solid organic wastes but also to produce superior quality manure to feed our “nutrient/organic matter hungry” soils. Millions of tons of food waste are buried or burned each year at considerable financial and environmental cost. Instead of discarding our food scraps, we can recycle them with the help of worms. Vermicomposting (worm composting) turns many types of kitchen waste into a nutritious soil for plants. When worm compost is added to soil, it boosts the nutrients available to plants and enhances soil structure and drainage.

Vermicompost is an ecofriendly natural fertilizer prepared from biodegradable organic wastes and is free from chemical inputs. It does not have any adverse effect on soil, plant and environment. It improves soil aeration, texture and tilth thereby reducing soil compaction. It improves water retention capacity of soil because of its high organic matter content. It promotes better root growth and nutrient absorption. It improves nutrient status of soil-both macro-nutrients and micro-nutrients.

Parama have already talked with Dueron Agro Industries, Samadhan Agro Tech, Samadhan Food Products, West Bengal Fisheries Dep. Bankura Division, Upvan Nursery; Bhagalpur; Bihar, S.D. Seed Product; Durgapur etc. regarding the marketing of the said product.
