abstract
The paper discusses recent progress and new developments in enzymatic modification of bast fibers for advanced applications such as composites. In this paper the focus is on, pectinases, laccases and xyloglucan endo-transglycosylases for the modification and functionalisation of bast fibers in order to demonstrate the potential of enzyme technology and natural fibers in this area. Research on the enzymatic modification of bast fibers for advanced applications contributes to bio-based economy through the development of novel processes for specific properties and through the development of enzyme technology.
