Biopolymers: Reuse, Recycling, and Disposal (Plastics Design by Michael Niaounakis

By Michael Niaounakis

Biopolymers Reuse, Recycling and Disposal is the 1st ebook protecting all features of biopolymer waste administration and post-usage situations, embracing present applied sciences, purposes, and the habit of biopolymers in a number of waste streams.

The e-book investigates the advantages and weaknesses, social, monetary and environmental affects, and regulatory elements of every expertise. It covers kinds of recycling and degradation, in addition to existence cycle research, all supported via case stories, literature references, and precise information regarding worldwide patents. Patents in particular—comprising eighty% of released technical literature during this rising box, broadly scattered, and infrequently on hand in jap only—are a key resource of knowledge.

Dr. Niaounakis attracts on disciplines corresponding to polymer technology, administration, biology and microbiology, natural chemistry, environmental chemistry, and patent legislations to provide a reference consultant for engineers, scientists and different pros focused on the advance and creation of biopolymers, waste administration, and recycling. this data can be worthwhile for regulators, patent legal professionals and lecturers operating during this field.

  • Explores thoughts and applied sciences inquisitive about dealing with biopolymers within the waste move, together with recycling and upcycling
  • Provides waste administration and recycling execs the information they should plan for the exponential progress in biopolymer waste
  • Helps engineers and product designers totally examine the end-of-life features in their environmentally sustainable 'green' items and solutions
