520    Agricultural biomass is abundant worldwide and it can be 
       considered as alternative source of renewable and 
       sustainable materials which can be used as potential 
       materials for different applications. Despite this 
       enormous production of agricultural biomass, only a small 
       fraction of the total biomass is utilized for different 
       applications. Industry must be prepared to take advantage 
       of the situation and utilize the available biomass in the 
       best possible manner. Agricultural biomass such as natural
       fibres has been successfully investigated as a great 
       potential to be used as a renewable and sustainable 
       materials for the production of composite materials. 
       Natural fibres offer excellent specific properties and 
       have potential as outstanding reinforcing fillers in the 
       matrix and can be used as an alternative material for 
       biocomposites, hybrid composites, pulp, and paper 
       industries. Natural fibre based polymer composites made of
       jute, oil palm, flex, hemp, kenaf have a low market cost, 
       attractive with respect to global sustainability and find 
       increasing commercial use in different applications. 
       Agricultural biomass based composites find applications in
       a number of fields viz., automotive industry and 
       construction industry. Future research on agricultural 
       biomass-natural fibre based composites should not only be 
       limited to its automotive applications but can be explored
       for its application in aircraft components, construction 
       industry, rural housing and biomedical applications. In 
       this book we will cover the chemical, physical, thermal, 
       electrical, and biodegradability properties of 
       agricultural biomass based composite materials and its 
       different potential applications. The main goal of this 
       volume is to familiarize researchers, scientists and 
       engineers with the unique research opportunities and 
       potentials of agricultural biomass based materials.
