Green composites made from natural fibers and biopolymers offer a potential alternative to the petroleum based synthetic composite materials that are currently used in many structural applications. In spite of being biodegradable and eco friendly, range of applications of these materials is limited to non-structural due to their poor mechanical properties. Characteristics such as strength, stiffness, resistance to impact load, wear resistance, damping capacity and thermal properties of these green composites have to be improved in order to enhance their range of applications. Hence, development of green composites with improved performance is of prime interest to the researchers. This book discusses various methods to enhance the mechanical properties of green composites.
