ABSTRACT
The article focuses on a research that proposes a coherent conceptual framework focuses on the obtaining, behaviour and environmental impact of some composites containing recycled cellulosic fibers as the main component. The main objectives of the project include performing advanced and complex research in order to gather information regarding the production, behavior and environmental impact of composites containing recycled cellulosic fibers.
