In recent years natural fibers have become increasingly popular for use in industrial applications as reinforcement for plastics. This essential resource brings detailed information on natural fibers from agriculture to the final product. The coverage encompasses processing steps from agriculture, fiber separation, fiber processing to the manufacturing of the final product, focusing on important materials with emerging applications in polymer composites, non-woven or felted products and textiles. This is a key guide for professional industrial researchers working in production processing, and students and academics in these areas.
