Abstract: In recent years, extensive studies have been carried out on natural fiber reinforced thermoplastics due to their low cost, high specific properties, simple fabrication methods, biodegradable nature and diverse applications touching all commercial sectors. The challenge is to make composites with properties that are not overly compromised by the use of low technology. In this work, we review the performances of these resources, that is, wheat flour/wheat husk/wheat grain. By adding natural fibers, composites are also obtained by extrusion process. These composites exhibit performances which allow their use only for short duration. The mechanical, morphological, chemical, water absorption and thermal properties of biocomposites were studied.
