Biopolymers: Processing and Products (Plastics Design by Michael Niaounakis

By Michael Niaounakis

Biopolymers and biodegradable plastics are discovering new functions in numerous sectors, from packaging, to clinical, automobile and lots of extra. As artificial plastics are more and more changed via their bioplastic equivalents, engineers are dealing with new demanding situations together with processing, charges, environmental sustainability and – eventually – constructing profitable products.

Biopolymers: Processing and Products, the second one publication of a trilogy devoted to biopolymers, supplies an in depth perception into all facets of processing, seamlessly linking the technological know-how of biopolymers to the most recent traits within the improvement of latest items. strategies lined within the ebook contain mixing, compounding, therapy, and shaping, in addition to the formation of biocomposites. Biopolymer coatings and adhesives also are investigated.

This publication specified in its insurance comprises info retrieved normally from patents, which shape the majority of the booklet. The insurance of processing might help engineers and architects to enhance output and potency of each level of the product improvement method, and may shape an imperative software in selecting the best biopolymer and processing approach for any given program, overlaying scientific, automobile, nutrients packaging and extra. it's going to support additionally engineers, fabric scientists and researchers to enhance present biopolymer strategies and carry larger items at reduce cost.

  • Multi-disciplinary strategy and important presentation of all to be had processing recommendations and new items of biopolymers
  • Contains info to not be present in the other book
  • Self-contained chapters
