Description

Lignocellulosic Fibre and Biomass-Based Composite Materials reviews the development, characterization

and applications of composite materials developed from the effective use of lignocellulosic fibre and

biomass. The book gathers together a wide spectrum of cutting-edge research on biomass fillers and

reinforcements used for the fabrication and synthesis of composites.

 

The book takes a systematic approach, investigating processing, design, characterization and

applications of biocomposites, in order to establish their important relationship as a general guideline

for end-user applications. Beginning with an introduction to biomass and its composites, a team of

leading experts in the field cover rice husk, kenaf, oil palm, alfa and doum fibres, bamboo, cork, and

many other materials, considering a range of applications, along with key issues such as performance and

sustainability. The groundbreaking research presented opens the door to obtaining advanced material

characteristics and significant enhancements in physical, mechanical, and thermal properties.

 

This will be become an extremely useful reference and technical guide for academic and industrial

researchers in composite materials, as well as for advanced students and industrialists working in

material commercialization.
