ABSTRACT:
Homo sapiens creative minds have always amazed the field of innovation with their novice ideas. One of these amazing innovations was Pineapple Leaf Fibers and for this pineapple plantation is widely cultivated in tropical and sub-tropical areas around the world. The leaves of pineapple plant enclosed with approximately 3% of strong white silky fibers. Philippines and Taiwan is the leader producer of the pineapple leaf fiber tracked by Brazil, Hawaii, Indonesia, West Indies and India. The yield of fibers could be about 6 lacks tones a year if proper extraction method is adopted in India only. Pina fiber has wonderful mechanical properties and it is 10 times stronger than cotton fibers. Realizing the need to explore more on this issue, author made an endeavor to know about Pineapple Leaf Fibers. It also endorses structural analysis of the same. Further it highlights the fibers’ properties panorama with the package of its extraction process. At the end, it pin points applications of PALF.
