Bagasse Plant Fiberboard / Fiberboard

Bagasse Plant Fiberboard

In India's slums, such as Dharavi, water is an important part of their daily life. It is also a problem that needs to be solved. The lack of water, pollution and other problems affect their health. So, starting from a household sewer, a combination of bagasse and citronella, a traditional Indian mosquito repellent herb, was made with a UF glue to make a plant-fiberboard. Physical and chemical deinsectization, clearing damp and health disinfection are used to reduce the occurrence of diseases such as malaria.
