Sound absorption material are mostly porous in nature, light weight, contain low thermal expansion coefficient and readily available. Therefore, this makes polymer most well suited to act as matrix component to form the porous noise absorption media due to its high versatility. However, its intrinsic flaws such insufficient glass transition temperature, yield strength and creep resistance still need to be reinforced. Here, the recently emerged composite polymeric membranes have been introduced to mitigate these intrinsic drawbacks as well as to further supplement the noise absorption efficiency. Toward eco-friendly plastic as well as to lessen agriculture wastes globally, many scientific researchers tried to incorporate recycled plastic and chemically treated micro/nano cellulose fibrils derived from various agriculture wastes to form composite polymeric membranes which could potentially replace pre-existing commercial noise absorption materials. In this paper, the comparison of the noise absorption efficiency along with the mechanical and thermal properties between commercial and composite polymeric membranes derived from the agriculture wastes will be made.
