Frysk Industrial, a company from the Bahia group Aurantiaca, has been investing heavily in coconut fiber market since the beginning of 2013, with biodegradable rolls and blankets brand Fibraztech. With the production of biodegradable blankets and rolls limited in Brazil, construction and mining companies that have difficulty in obtaining the product in large scale to solve problems in projects and constructions, which include recovery of degraded areas and containment of slopes, can now count on Fibraztech products, that have high quality and high production capacity. With an investiment of over 250 million, the company operates throughout coconut production chain in one of the largest producing regions in Brazil, in the municipality of Conde, on the coast of Bahia. In addition, Frysk Industrial is responsible for the exploitation of 100% of the fruit peel and its main objective is to produce the best fibers and coconut biodegradable blankets on the market. “Today we have the capacity to deliver a great quantity of the product to our suppliers, with an exceptional quality”, reinforces the vice-president of Aurantiaca, Roberto Lessa.

Biodegradable blankets are already being applied in the bioengineering sector, in the recovery of degraded areas, erosions, emergency works, protection of water courses and also in agribusiness. According to Lessa, the material still has the potential to serve the automotive market, using the fibers and composites in seats, backrests, head restraints, door linings, carpets, ceiling, glove compartment and others. “We also have a laboratory with the capacity to meet, develop and solve specific demands of suppliers, quickly and efficiently”, says Lessa.

Since the anti-erosion biodegradable blankets are manufactured industrially from the vegetable fibers, those made with coconut fiber have the best results in terms of cost, response time and biodegradability. The fibers are sewn together to form a very resistant fabric, protected by polypropylene or jute nets, which allows a sufficient life for the various cycles of germination, in addition to being highly sustainable.
