The aim to reduce the environmental pollution due to the production and the disposal of the syntheticmaterials, has recently lead to the enactment of regulations for the environmental protection thatimpose the increasing use of eco-friendly and/or renewable materials and, consequently, to aconsiderable interest about the so called biocomposites, i.e. to innovative materials obtained by thereinforcing of eco-friendly or renewable polymers by natural fibers as flax, jute, hemp, agave etc.Although numerous research works have been devoted to biocomposites, at present only few articleshave dealt with the development of high performance biocomposites for structural applications. Inorder to give a contribution to the development of such materials, the present work considers in detailthe development of innovative biocomposites obtained by a green epoxy matrix reinforced withoptimized agave fibers.
