PALF (pineapple leaf fiber) is one of the abundant sources that have been used for ages to be processed as different end product. The methods to extract the fiber are abounding. However comparisons between the machines are needed to ascertain the better function of machines and whether all natural fibers can be extracted using the same exact machine. Data shown indicates that different types of methods used to extract the fibers and sometimes theoretically worked for certain types of fibers.
