Sugarcane bagasse fiber reinforced composites: Recent advances

What is it about?

Natural fiber composites expected to be in great demand in the coming years due to increased consumer awareness to reduce the waste and environmental pollution. Bagasse fibers available in plenty as an agro-residue and bio composites derived from such renewable resources offer potential for scale-up and value addition. This review provides an insight on current research trends on development and characterization of bagasse-based composites. Various chemical treatment methods and processing techniques used to improve the mechanical, thermal, acoustic, and aging properties of sugarcane bagasse reinforced composites are summarized in the review.
