In recent years, there have been a tremendous increase in interest, research and development in the natural fiber, biopolymers and polymers materials for their use in bio-composite, packaging, agriculture, medicine etc. Many scientists are modifying traditional materials to more user-friendly and novel polymer composites out of naturally occurring materials. Low recycling rates and the high volume of non-degradable plastics have shortened dramatically the life expectancy of current commercial…
