Recent Advances in Green Composites

Abstract:

Article Preview

This review aims at reporting on very recent developments in the, properties and applications of Green Composites. One very important aspect of green composites is that they can be designed and tailored to meet different requirements. Recent advances in natural fiber development offer significant oppurtunities for improved materials from renewable resources. Biocomposites offer a significant non-food market for crop-derived fibres and resins. Considerable growth has been seen in the use of biocomposites in the automotive and decking markets over the past decade or so, but application in other sectors has hitherto been limited. Recent developments of different biodegradable polymers and biocomposites are discussed in this review article.
