Bio Composite Materials

in my Automotive Design/Production magazine I read about a new composite being by the University of Portsmouth in UK. They are using a date palm fiber biomass for things like bumpers and liners. The products are reported to have better tensile strength and better low velocity impact strength.
Date palm fiber polycaprolactone PCL bio-composite is completely biodegradable and recyclable…”

I get a bending strength of about 50,000 psi which is impressive.
