Abstract: There is a growing attention to develop environmental friendly and low-cost materials using renewable sources regarding as environmental awareness and economic issues. So, economic and environmental legislations are playing an important role to use green fibers for production of thermoplastic composites instead of synthetic fibers. Green fibers are promising materials as filler for thermoplastic composites due to their low density, biodegradability, and abundance. Combination of a green fiber and thermoplastic matrix can provide production of sustainable and high-performance composite materials depending on good interfacial adhesion between green fiber and thermoplastic matrix. Compatibility of green fiber with matrix can be enhanced by optimized fiber size and orientation, effective fiber treatment, changes in manufacturing process, and operation conditions. Strong adhesion between fiber and matrix has synergistic effects on the physicomechanical and thermal properties of green fiber thermoplastic composites. With the help of their advantages, green fiber thermoplastic composites are commonly utilized in many applications. © 2021, Springer Nature Singapore Pte Ltd.
