Scope Natural fibers are a renewable resource ready to be used in many new applications due to their abundance worldwide, excellent properties, low cost, and green solution. There has been an increasing interest in research and a growing industrial sector, with a high potential to significantly reduce the CO2 footprint of other traditional materials and processes. On the other hand, there is an increasing development of composite materials with natural fibers, using as a matrix polymers, ceramics, and biodegradable materials. The applications include but are not limited to sports, transportation, armor, medical, infrastructure, construction and building materials, and architecture.
