Rape fibre. Coloured Scanning Electron Micrograph (SEM) of fibres from a rape plant, Brassica napus. These fibres can be mixed with plastic to make biocomposite materials which are stronger than plastic by itself. The fibres have a complex structure of strands of cellulose which are wound together & surrounded by layers of hemicellulose & lignin. The fibres are strong, cheap, and light. They are a renewable resource, biodegradable, and are easier and safer to handle than man-made materials. Image taken at the BioComposites Centre in Bangor, Wales, Great Britain. Magnification unknown.
