      • Industrial packaging: packaging for products such as cement, coal, firewood/kindling, pet foods, salts & chemicals.
      • Geotechnical engineering: due to the woven nature of the material, polypropylene is great for filtering and draining, making it popular on construction sites.
      • Flood control: used to minimise or prevent the devastating effects of flood waters. Woven polypropylene bags can be used to create barriers against the water, and do not degrade once they have become wet like hessian.
