FROGMAT: AN INNOVATIVE BRITISH SYSTEM FOR PROTECTING THE ENVIRONMENT

Originally developed to combat oil spills, Frogmat is now widely adopted for a variety of environmentally useful applications such as soil stabilisation and rehabilitation in coastal areas which are under threat from scouring and water erosion from waves and wind. Frogmat is produced from natural straw fibres sandwiched between two layers of biodegradable netting and can be manufactured on site by its own self-contained production plant which turns out the material at the rate of 10m/min. It is also available as a finished product in rolls 1.2m wide and 100m in length.
