Abstract:

Recycling of unmanaged agro-waste has always been a matter of great environmental concern to the developing countries. Recycling it into the fabric will be a major breakthrough in the textile as well as agricultural sector. Cornhusk is an agricultural byproduct having high potential for converting into fibres. Corn husk is bio cellulosic material and exhibits 80-87% cellulose and is a future renewable resource. It is eco-friendly, bio-degradable, natural substitute to the synthetics and resistant to UV light as well. Present review focus on the technology involved, advantage, adaptability and futuristic approaches for fibre extracted from corn.
