FRANKFURT - Two researchers are to be presented with an award for developing a biodegradable cotton-jute fabric with a waterproof coating that can substitute for non-biodegradable PVC-coated polyester.

Professor Debasish Das, of the University of Calcutta in India, and Professor Subhas Ghosh, of Eastern Michigan University in the US, won the 2019 Discover Natural Fibres Initiative (DNFI) Innovation Award.

Their new cotton-jute fabric is said to be suitable for use in outdoor fabrics such as tarps, awnings, canopies and soft car roofs.
