Frequent use of various types of green composite in different applications has led to the great development in material science technology. Coconut shell which is generally considered waste material is been analysed here to get its desired properties and characteristics. Basically composite particles are studied using various macroscopic and microscopic approach and with various advance techniques like Scanning electron microscopy (SEM), Water absorption and Thickness swelling test, Thermal analysis, Thermo Gravimetric analysis (TGA) and Differential thermal analysis (DTA). In our work we have focused on the thermal analysis of coconut shell particles using TGA and DTA technology and finally the conclusion is made regarding the feasibility of using Coconut Shell Particle in Application of green composites.
