Stabilisation matting turns into mulch

(1985) Stabilisation matting turns into mulch. The Earthmover and Civil Contractor, January 1985. [Publication] [Special Collections]


Geotextiles survey feature discusses the laying of Fibermulch, a new biodegradable soil stabilisation matting released by Total Erosion and Pollution Control.
This product is made in Australia with the natural matting made from coconut fibre with a polypropylene backing.
One of the first applications of Fibermulch was at the Orange College of Technical and Further Education where it was used to stabilise embankments around a park.

This article contains one image of an unnamed person carrying a roll of Fibermulch.
