Types of Erosion Control Products: Currently there is a large variety of erosion control and bioengineering products made with synthetic, natural or composite materials available. Nedia Enterprises focuses primarily on those products made from natural fibers such as coir, jute and straw.

We also offer composite products that combine straw or coir with synthetic fibers for additional strength and longevity. See the table on pages 4 and 5 for typical applications of our line of products.
