Bicolano creates unique product from waste

Justino Arboleda, former dean of the Bicol University College of Agriculture with a doctorate in agricultural engineering from Tokyo University designed and built a decorticating machine that extracts fibers from coconut husks. These fibers are then further processed into eco-friendly by-products such as erosion control nets, mattresses and garden products like coir blocks, coco chips, coco pots, plant hangers, and coco crumble.
