Abstract
During the past few years the price of sisal fibre has dropped so steeply that the sisal industry is looking for means to increase the financial return from its estates. At present, only 4 percent of the leaf is recovered as fibre, and to improve this extraction rate some estates are using a machine for the secondary removal of fibre, in addition to the preliminary decortication. The material produced after this second removal is known as Sisal waste, and consists mainly of the leaf pulp together with a small amount of fibre.
