    Author : Sung-Woo Cho; Mikael Hedenqvist; Amar K. Mohanty; Högskolan i Borås; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; wheat gluten; solution casting; compression molding; extrusion; injection molding; aging; migration; opacity; heat sealability; hemp fiber; laminate; polylactic acid; clay; nanocomposites; Energi och material; nanocomposites.; Other chemical engineering; Övrig kemiteknik;

    Abstract : The depletion of the petroleum resources and a number of environmental concerns led to considerable research efforts in the field of biodegradable materials over the last few decades. Of the diverse range of biopolymers, wheat gluten (WG) stands out as an alternative to synthetic plastics in packaging applications due to its attractive combination of flexibility and strength, high gas barrier properties under low humidity conditions and renewability.

  2. 2. Modeling the mechanical performance of natural fiber composites

    Author : Erik Marklund; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Polymera konstruktionsmaterial; Polymeric Composite Materials;

    Abstract : Due to environmental concerns the interest in use of renewable and recyclable materials has dramatically increased over the recent years. Wood and other lignocellulosic fiber reinforced polymers have large potential as structural materials due to the high specific stiffness, high specific strength and high aspect ratio of the fibers.

  3. 3. Mechanics of microdamage development and stiffness degradation in fiber composites

    Author : Johannes Eitzenberger; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Polymeric Composite Materials; Polymera konstruktionsmaterial;

    Abstract : Damage in composites reduces its performance and durability and thus its usefulness. The common subject in all papers presented in the licentiate thesis is distributed microdamage, and the materials of interest are a Hemp/Lignin natural composite and glass/carbon fiber reinforced plastics composites.

  4. 4. Polymer extraction and utilization of brown algal biomass

    Author : Martin Sterner; Ulrica Edlund; Fredrik Gröndahl; Marguerite Rinaudo; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Algae; Saccharina latissima; alginate; brown seaweed; extraction; filament; chelation; gel; Fiber- och polymervetenskap; Fibre and Polymer Science;

    Abstract : Aquaculture is a field with a world changing potential. The areas at sea are enormous and aquatic cultivations impact both the environment and local ecology far less than land based cultivations. In the realm of algae, abundancies exists of nutrition, water and accessible sunlight, but there is constant shortage of places to dwell. READ MORE

  5. 5. Development of hierarchical cellulosic reinforcement for polymer composites

    Author : Abdelghani Hajlane; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Polymeric Composite Materials; Polymera konstruktionsmaterial;

    Abstract : Cellulose is an environmentally friendly material which is obtainable in vast quantities, since it is present in every plant. Cellulosic fibers are commercially found in two forms: natural (flax, hemp, cotton, sisal, wood, etc.) and regenerated cellulose fibers (RCF). READ MORE
