- Scientists in Bangladesh have developed a method to convert Jute fibre into low-cost biodegradable cellulose sheets named as Sonali.
- These can be used as wrapping material and carrying bag.The physical qualities of the invented jute fibre and plastic are quite similar.
- The Eco-friendly jute poly bags made up of Sonali can also be used in garments and food packaging work and they are not harmful for human health.
- However,the main challenge in the large scale adoption of Sonali sheet is the relatively high cost of production which is almost double that of polythene.But,the production on a large scale is expected to bring down the cost.
