Now-a-days renewable materials are either eco friendly or recyclable. A natural fibre for instance, alkaline treated banana fibre has numerous advantages and it is considerably useful to the automobile industry. The advantages comprise fairly good mechanical strength, low density and low cost. This study aimed to produce optimised Alkaline Treated Banana Fibre Reinforced Cardanol Resin (ATBF/CR) biocomposites, by observing the effect of processing conditions under different combinations of Weight (%), Fiber Length (mm) and NaOH Treatment (%) respectively on tensile strength behaviour. Many test runs with different parameter combinations of compression moulding using ‘Minitab 17' were conducted by Response Surface Methodology (RSM) and Central Composite Design (CCD). As a result, the optimized value obtained for the maximum tensile strength is 25.11 MPa
