Scientist in Bangladesh has invented one kind of amazing bag

Introducing of Sonali Bag

Sonali bag is invented by Bangladeshi scientist which made from jute fiber and its look like transparent polythene bag but it’s bio-degradable. To protect from hazard effect of polythene goods; scientist over the globe trying to replace that effect by some new invention. Finally one of Bangladeshi scientist named Dr. Mubarak Ahmad Khan demand that he invented such bags which made from jute and it’s completely bio-degradable.

All we are known about Jute fiber which is also known as Golden fiber. Jute fibers are silky, lustrous and golden brown in color. It is therefore partly a textile fiber and partly wood. It has strength, low cost, durability and versatility. It is used where low cost is important than durability and it is called Golden fiber.

A scientist in Bangladesh has invented a kind of bag from Jute namely ‘Sonali Bag’ which is not only eco-friendly but also affordable. Scientists have conducted researches for long to invent an effective alternative to the harmful polythene.

But they do not find any way. The new jute-made bag used as handy as polybag, it is supposed to have a huge potential for successfully ending the use polythene in the country and save the environment of Bangladesh.

Dr. Mubarak Ahmad Khan has invented the ‘Sonali bag’. He has successfully developed the low-cost biodegradable sheet from modified jute cellulose. Mechanical properties of polyethylene sheet is lower than the developed sheet. The product shows complete biodegradability within 4-6 months of soil burial. It will be degraded in water by around 8hrs.








Chemical composition:-

Cellulose: 65.2%

Hemi-cellulose: 22.2 %

Lignin: 12.5 %

Water soluble matter: 1.5 %

Fat and wax: 0.6 %



  1. It is biodegradable so Environment won’t be polluted by this product.
  2. The production of Jute in Bangladesh is more but its uses are not enough than its production. So that it can get much positive feedback from user.
  3. Because of being transparent its look like also polyethylene and attractive.
  4. It has more strength than polyethylene so it can carry much load.
  5. Because of made from jute fiber, after bulk production its cost would be cheap.
