Journal of Natural Fibers
ISSN (printed): 1544-0478. ISSN (electronic): 1544-046X.
The Journal of Natural Fibers meets the growing demand for a comprehensive guide to new applications, processing methods and techniques, and up-to-date research findings on natural fibers. Edited by Ryszard Kozlowski, Coordinator of the FAO/European Cooperative Research Network on Flax and other Bast Plants, the journal presents peer-reviewed articles and review papers on basic and applied research, research and development, diversified areas of application, international units and standards, and new technologies. The Journal of Natural Fibers presents new achievements in basic research and the development of multi-purpose applications that further the economical and ecological production of hard fibers, protein fibers, seed, bast, leaf, and cellulosic fibers. An international panel of academics, researchers, and practitioners examines new processing methods and techniques, new trends and economic aspects of processing natural raw materials, sustainable agriculture and eco-friendly techniques that address environmental concerns, the efficient assessment of the life cycle of natural fibers-based products, and the natural reclamation of polluted land. Each issue of the Journal of Natural Fibers includes continuing features that examine: the world market; new patents and technologies; reports from conferences, symposia, and workshops; new developments in the industry; updates on cultivation and harvesting techniques; agribusiness notes; and much more! The Journal of Natural Fibers is an invaluable resource for scientists, researchers, consultants, and academics working with research and development institutes, and agriculture and textile universities. The journal is also of great value to producers and processors of lignocellulosic fibers, natural silk, and wool, and to anyone working in the textile, geotextile, automotive, pharmaceutical, cosmetic, building, and food industries.
