Green building is a movement that has gained global attention over the past few years. Green buildings are planned to be environmentally responsible, economically viable, and healthy places to live and work. One of the main materials currently used in green buildings is biocomposite.

Acetylation is another method of modifying the surface of natural fibers and making them more hydrophobic. It describes the introduction of an acetyl functional group into an organic compound. The main idea of acetylation is to coat the OH groups of fibers which are responsible for their hydrophilic character with molecules that have a more hydrophobic nature. The most important and popular grafting method is the application of maleic anhydride modified polymers as compatibilizers in natural fiber composites.

Lignocellulose degrades in a very slow process [104]. While the bacterial degradation for wood fibers has been thoroughly investigated, the literature on the bacterial biodegradation of plastic composites is limited. 8 Future trends The advanced biofiber-reinforced plastic composite contributes to enhancing the development of biocomposites in regards to performance and sustainability. Biocomposites have created substantial commercial markets for value-added products especially in the automotive sector.
