There is a growing need to develop automobile brake pad materials from sustainable sources. The study of substitute brake pad materials from sustainable sources is an area that requires immediate attention. This is because previous materials used (such as asbestos) are known to have carcinogenic effects. Several studies have investigated alternative materials to asbestos for brake pads. This review paper presents some of the most appropriate environmentally friendly and optimal composites for brake pads. Biomass-based composites from agricultural waste such as natural fibers waste are reviewed. This paper also surveyed the use of substitute materials as filler and binder, such as epoxy resin, phenolic resins, and other adhesives.
