  • Hibiscus cannabinus is an annual herbaceous crop of the Malvaceae family that is mostly grown in tropical regions of Asia and Africa. It has great potential applications in the pulp and paper industry, oil absorption and potting media, board making, filtration media, and animal feed. It has also been identified as an appealing alternative fiber source for the manufacture of a large range of paper products, because it requires less energy and chemical inputs for processing compared with standard wood sources[1] [2].
