With increasing environmental awareness, the use of natural fibers are growing rapidly in light of market demands for "green" products. One such example is a pultruded natural fiber composite. In this study, the energy consumption of an innovative new pultruded composite integrating flax fibers with a resin having recycled content was compared to a regular glass fiber composite by using a life cycle perspective. This study begins to identify hotspots within the life cycle of green fiber composites to enable further improvements.
