dc.description.abstract Green materials and composites is a movement that has been gained the global attention over the past few years. Recently, green. materials are planned to be environmentally responsible, economically viable, and healthy places to live and work. One of the main materials that are currently used in green materials is bio-composite. Bio-composites are emerging as the replacement to synthetic fiber reinforced composites. They are environmentally friendly and help to eliminate the increasing cost of using petroleum-based materials. Bio-composites are the combination of natural fibers or biofibers (usually derived from plant or cellulose) with polymer matrices, Biofibers offer many advantages such as renewability, recyclability, biodegradability low specific gravity and high specific strength. In addition, using biofibers can address the ecological and economical concerns of the industrial materials. Generally, biocomposites have received increasing; attention from both of the academic world and industries as building, automotive, packaging, decoration and so on. This paper discusses about the Extraction of PALF, some of its physical and mechanical properties and biocomposite formation and its properties. en_US
