One of the projects that form part of the new strategic investment areas within the CSIR deals with the use of natural fibres in construction products. This initiative seeks to make a meaningful contribution to the concept of bio-based housing. As part of this project, a prototype natural fibre-based insulated sandwiched panel was recently developed at the CSIR under the leadership of Dr Rajesh Anandjiwala. The project has a strong focus on both materials and application-oriented product development.
