The use of biomass to produce bio-based composites and building materials

R.M. Rowell,    University of Wisconsin, USA

Abstract:

There are many different types of natural fibers coming from a wide variety of plant sources. These fibers have been used by humans since the beginning of human existence for clothing, heating, shelter, weapons, tools, packaging and writing materials. This chapter will deal with the use of biomass in biocomposites. These will include waferboard, flakeboard, particleboard, fiberboard, geotextiles, filters, and sorbents as well as physical and chemical properties of natural fibers. In most cases, natural resources have been used in composites without any modification for high volume, low cost and low performance products. ...
