Analysis of the Wheat Straw/Flax Fiber Reinforced Polymer Hybrid Composites

In the last decades, the agro wastes in manufacturing different types of composites found the increasing utilization. The world statistics of the Wheat and rice straw indicates that about 710 million metric tons of Wheat straw and 670 million tons of rice straw are produced each year as the agricultural waste, beside the other cereal and forest waste. Therefore, it causes a huge environmental impact and this problem is growing each year. The production of plastic composites from agro waste materials is receiving the substantial consideration currently. In this work, we suggest to use the Wheat straw in its whole shape instead of shredded one for forming the green composite. The hybrid composite was formed of Wheat straw, flax fiber, and jute fabric. This study targets at the mechanical properties of Wheat straw. The results indicate the possibility of manufacturing of the thin plates and shafts from such hybrid combinations after the increasing the crushing force of Wheat straw.
