Abstract:As the rate of deforestation increases, a new fibre is needed to replace wood. Corn residue is a viable alternative. Replicating the procedure of wood based particleboard, a corn based fibreboard can be produced. The pressed fibreboard shares many of the physical aspects of particleboard, without the health concerns.
