Summary Protein fibers such as silk and wool have been used as textile fibers for centuries. It is only in recent years that these fibers have been converted into fine powder forms for non-textile applications. This presentation will cover our recent research in protein fiber powders. Ultra-fine powders from different protein fibers have been produced using a combination of media and non media milling techniques. New application examples of these fine powders are discussed. These applications include hybrid fibers combining the advantages of natural and synthetic polymer fibers, tissue engineering composite scaffolds with enhanced biomechanical properties, and metal ion absorption.
