Preface
Natural fibres are under intensive study due to their ecofriendly nature, peculiar properties, and some other advantages such as availability, easy and safe handling, and biodegradability.

Natural fibres have admirable physical and mechanical properties, though it varies with the plant source, species, geography, and climatic conditions. Pineapple leaf fibre (PALF) is one of the abundantly available waste materials of South East Asia, India, and South America until now not explored full potential of it. From the socioeconomic prospective, PALF can be a new source of raw material to the industries and can be a potential replacement of synthetic fibre. This book will study the anatomical structure, source, and variety of PALF which will further elaborate physical, mechanical, and fibre/matrix interfacial bonding and composites.

This sustainable material penetrates in the market segment and has significant potential in automotive, marine, aerospace, construction and building, wind energy and consumer goods, etc. The book contains extensive examples and real-world products that will be suitable as per the need of markets.

This book covered versatile topics such as cultivation of anatomical structure of pineapple as future material for versatile applications, extraction process of pineapple leaf fibres, improvement of pineapple leaf fibres by various treatments, comparative study of natural fibres, design and fabrication of green biocomposites, conceptual design of biocomposites, green biocomposites for automotive components, structural purposes and aircraft application.

We are highly thankful to all authors who have contributed chapters and provided their valuable ideas and knowledge in this edited book. We attempt to gather all the scattered information of authors from diverse fields around the world (Malaysia, Brazil, and India) in the areas of green composites and biocomposites and finally complete this venture in a fruitful way. We greatly appreciate contributors’ commitment for their support to compile our ideas in reality.

We are highly thankful to Springer Singapore team for their generous cooperation at every stage of the book production.

It is US$10. To get this book send email: textileebooks@gmail.com
