Plant fibers are promising reinforcements for use in composite materials due to the low cost, high specific strength and modulus, easy availability, especially the renewability and environmental friendly characteristics. Natural fiber reinforced composites (NFRCs) have raised great attentions and interests from both the academic and industry in recent years.
