Abstract

Natural fibres have emerged as attractive candidates for use as reinforcements in the composite materials due to their competitive advantages over synthetic fibres such as abundance, low cost, biodegradability, eco-friendliness and sustainability. Jute and other bast fibres are strong competitors for conventional glass and carbon fibres to be used in reinforced composites targeting the application areas that do not require very high mechanical performance. This chapter gives an overview of jute fibre and its composites to reduce the eco-impact of non-renewable polymers.
