Road fencing profile made from PVC-rice fibre composite to protect wildlife

IA19_Pict_Granzplast_Profile DUCK's protection

Using locally sourced rice fibre, Granzplast has created a composite with PVC to make a profile that is specifically adapted to protect small animals like baby birds from roadways. Unable to fly yet, they cross roads in environmentally protected areas, and the fence keeps them off the roads. The rice stem fibre, usually burned, is recycled into the composite used to make the profile.
