Abstract
This work demonstrate the sustainable application of cellulose-rich oil palm empty fruit bunch fiber (EFBF) by hybridization with lignin-rich kenaf core fiber (KCF), and reinforced into poly(lactic acid) (PLA) to form hybrid biocomposites. Fabrication of the hybrid biocomposites was achieved by manually mixing 55 wt. % (EFBF) with 5 wt. % (KCF) and melt-blended with 40 wt. % (PLA), and further compression-molded. Characterizations of the hybrid biocomposites via dynamic mechanical analysis and thermogravimetric analysis revealed a synergistic improvement in the thermal performance of the hybrid biocomposites compared to their single-fiber biocomposite. This implies that hybridization of the cellulose-rich EFBF with lignin-rich KCF is more viable approach to achieving sustainable application of oil palm fiber in biocomposite fabrication and application.

Key words: Biopolymer, natural fiber, poly(lactic acid), Thermal properties etc.
