Prospects for carbon fibres made from lignin Lignin is known as its availability as the second natural organic material after cellulose. It is a renewable, low-cost natural polymer, which has not yet been widely utilised as a substitute for synthetic polymers. The pulp industry generally uses lignin as an energy source by burning it in
