Display Profile » Geo Textiles

Geo Textiles The principal functions performed by Geotextiles are confinement/separation, reinforcement, filtration and drainage, and protection. Application areas include civil engineering (roads and pavements, slope stabilization and embankment protection, tunnels, rail-track bed stabilization, ground stabilization and drainage, etc), marine engineering (Soil Erosion control and embankment protection, breakwaters) and environmental engineering (landfills and waste management). As geotextiles reduce the land required and disturbances to the local environment during the construction of infrastructure, they offer several economic and environmental advantages.

Geotextiles products include geotextiles, geogrids, geonets, geopipes, geocells, geomembranes, geocomposites, prefabricated vertical drains, geotubes etc. With the growing emphasis on biodegradable products, fibres like woven jute have also attracted significant interest as temporary stabilizing material in infrastructure applications.

The Indian geotech segment is expected to grow at a rate of 22% to US$ 201 Million by 2016-17 as per estimates of the Working Group on Textiles and Jute Industry, Ministry of Textiles, Government of India.
