Description

Roselle: Production, Processing, Products and Biocomposites complies the latest findings on the production, processing, products and composites of the roselle plant. The book provides researchers with the latest information on its entire use, including fibers and fruit for any application. Subjects covered include environmental advantages and challenges, the plant as a renewable resource, economic issues such as the impact of biobased medicines, biodiesel, the current market for roselle products and regulations for food packaging materials. Sections include commentary from leading industrial and academic experts in the field who present cutting-edge research on roselle fiber for a variety of industries.

By comprehensively covering the development and characterization of roselle fiber as a potential to replace conventional fiber made from petroleum-based polymers, this book is a must-have resource for anyone requiring up-to-date knowledge on the lifecycle of the roselle plant.
