Palm fiber is a biodegradable fiber that is obtained from palm tree products such as leaves, fruits. Palm fiber has gained immense popularity in the packaging sector, as these by-products are eco-friendly and have the potential to replace plastic usage in the packaging industry. Palm fibers are extracted using two methods; one of the methods of extracting is via palm fruits. Palm oils are extracted using fruits, and the waste generated after oil extraction can be used for palm fiber. Another method of extraction is via chemical processes where palm leaf sheath is used to extract fiber by treating chemical degumming process at 100°C for 2 hours and 30 min. Palm fiber has various benefits, such as it is inexpensive, naturally available, and have less carbon footprint than others.
