[USPRwire, Mon Mar 18 2019] The global geotextiles market is forecast to propel in the forthcoming years due to expected growth in agriculture and construction industries.
Its product range includes PP/PET staple fiber, nonwoven geotextiles (80-2000 gsm), and geocomposites.
ANDRITZ has received an order from Manifattura Fontana, based in Valstagna, Italy, and part of the Belgian technical textile company Sioen Industries, to supply a neXline needlepunch eXcelle line for the production of geotextiles. Start-up of the line is scheduled for October 2018.
The geotextiles (one of the main groups of geosynthetics) are typically used in coastal engineering structures as filters and for manufacturing sand-filled elements (called geosystems), like geobags, geotubes, or geocontainers.
