Invention Summary

This invention describes a process wherein lignocellulosic fibers recovered from various agricultural waste streams (such as crop waste otherwise discarded by ethanol plants) are combined with commodity thermoplastics as a means of reinforcing and strengthening the plastics. This method works with commodity thermoplastics and recycled plastics where other fiber reinforcing processes have not succeeded.
