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.
