The traditional coir industry in the state of Kerala is facing an acute crisis of fibre shortage. For some time, it has been depending on the green husk fibre the major part of which is brought from the neighbouring states. The industry feels that there is an untapped stock of husks in the rural areas from where collection of husk is difficult and on-site defibering is not possible. Therefore there is a need to develop a mobile fibre extraction machine which could be taken to the remote villages so that unutilized husks from such areas could be tapped and fibre could be made available to the Coir Industry.

Central Coir Research Institute, Kalavoor the research center of Coir Board successfully developed a Mobile Fibre Extraction Machine that is being demonstrated before the coir industry. The comparative advantages of this machine with the stationery machines that are in vogue are given below:
