The present analysis gives an insight to understand the preparation of composite materials using biodegradable wastes. In the current scenario, disposal of non-degradable materials like electronic waste, construction waste, biomedical waste, radioactive waste and industrial waste are main problems to the human society. In the organic waste, the major portion of waste is fallen from trees as dry leaves. Those leaf wastes are not handled appropriately and due to human ignorance, they are not disposed properly. The pollutants that are generated from the burning leaves enter into the atmosphere which results in greenhouse gas effect as a whole, as well as the formation of particulate matter. The composite can be easily manufactured from the dry leaves at desired shape through casting process by using the raw sources available from the plant waste. The composite developed without any additives, chemical treatments and synthetic fillers was a biodegradable and eco-friendly material. © 2019, Springer Nature Singapore Pte Ltd.
