Recent interest in the utilization of greener materials has reinitiated the interest in natural bers and brils as reinforcement for polymers (Blaker et al. 2010). The use of polymer composites from renewable sources has advantages over synthetic sources, particularly as a solution to the environmental problems generated by plastic waste. Green composites is today widely researched because of the need for innovations in the development of materials from biodegradable polymers, preservation of fossil-based raw materials, complete biological degradability, and reduction in the volume of carbon dioxide release into the atmosphere.
