The increasing demand for environmentally friendly materials has ushered in a new generation of bio plastics and plant fibre based composite materials. The quality of the raw components is very important when manufacturing a bio based material. For example, many plant fibres are hygroscopic, which means that moisture becomes an important quality determining factor. Therefore, a better understanding and knowledge of moisture adsorption equilibrium is of importance. The moisture adsorption… CONTINUE READING
