CORNET project ProGeo 

The CORNET project ProGeo2 “Geotextiles from Sustainable Raw Materials and Textile Waste, New Mobile Production Technology and New Application Fields in Drainage and Hydraulic Engineeringstarted at the beginning of 2017. Besides STFI and Forschungskuratorium Textil e.V. (FKT) as German partners, the Polish Institute of Textile Engineering and Polymer Materials of the University of Bielsko-Biala (ATH) and the Polish Association of Producers of Geosynthetics (SPG) are involved in the research cooperation. Objective of the project is the development and construction of a novel mobile technology for the on-site production of super coarse ropes made of renewable natural materials (hay, straw) or textile waste materials. These ropes will be used as erosion protecting geotextiles for embankments and slopes. New application fields of such systems will be tested and evaluated. These include hydraulic engineering, drainage and soil reinforcement.
