Abstract

Numerous investigations have been conducted recently to identify viable alternatives for synthetic fibers. Chicken feather fiber is regarded as an excellent alternative for synthetic fibers in bio-natural fiber composite. Due to the lack of standardized extraction methods, chicken feather fiber, a by-product of chicken production, is challenging to examine, treat, and post-process. The chicken feather fiber is remarkable class of fibers that has the potential to use in a variety of applications due to its relative abundance along with its suitable characteristics. This study suggests that the use of chicken feather fiber produces biodegradable and ecologically friendly mixtures that provide a solution to eliminating the majority of the solid waste generated by poultry farms. This paper gives a thorough examination of the composite, focusing on the mechanical, thermal, and water absorption characteristics of chicken feather fiber-reinforced polymer composites.
