Abstract: The paper reported a comparative study of themethods of extraction of vegetable fibres encounteredin the literature; three main ones was chose, namely: combing, retting withpre-treatment of the bagasse in salt and distilled water, and Chemical extraction at three concentrationlevels of soda (2N, 1N, 0.1N) withpre-treatment of bagasse with salt water and distilled water. After extractingthe fibres using these methods, it appeared that the natural methods (rettingand combing) have a higher yield of around 70 compared to the chemicalmethod which has a low yield of around 40 . The fibres obtained by the chemicalextraction method (1N-BPD) had the best characteristics.
