  1. 1. Improving properties of poly(lactic acid) biopolymer for use in food packaging

    Author : Mitul Kumar Patel; Kristiina Oksman; Mohini Sain; Marc Delgado Aguire; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; biopolymer; poly lactic acid ; chitin nanocrystals; barrier properties; liquid assisted extrusion; Trä och bionanokompositer; Wood and Bionanocomposites;

    Abstract : The petroleum-based plastics are widely used for food packaging applications because of their low cost, easy processability, and tunable properties to meet the specific needs of food packaging. However, these polymers are non-biodegradable, leading to a substantial amount of plastic waste in both land and marine ecosystems. READ MORE

  2. 2. Lactic acid bacteria fermentations in oat-based suspensions

    Author : Olof Mårtensson; Bioteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; beta-glucans; probiotics; prebiotics; bacterial survival; Food and drink technology; Livsmedelsteknik; oats; ropiness; lactic acid bacteria; ropy;

    Abstract : This thesis deals with the fermentation characteristics of lactic acid bacteria (LAB) in oat-based suspensions, with formulation work of fermented products based on oat and with nutritional studies of these products. Changes in structure in terms of viscosity and ropiness were studied when exopolysaccharide (EPS)-producing LAB strains, namely, Lactobacillus delbrueckii subsp. READ MORE

  3. 3. Plasticized Poly (lactic acid) Films - Preparation and Properties

    Author : Nadia Ljungberg; Centrum för analys och syntes; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; phase separation; aging; thermal properties; dynamic mechanical properties; processing; film preparation; oligomer synthesis; poly lactic acid ; plasticizers; migration; cold crystallization; Polymer technology; biopolymers; Polymerteknik;

    Abstract : The development of biodegradable polymers from renewable resources is of importance in order to prevent the depletion of fossil fuels and the increasing emissions of carbon dioxide to the atmosphere caused by the commodity plastics of today. However, to be able to replace these non-environmentally friendly materials, production costs of biodegradable polymers have to be decreased and their physical properties need to be enhanced.

  4. 4. Development of biocomposites from lactic acid thermoset resins and cellulose fibre reinforcements

    Author : Fatimat Oluwatoyin Bakare; Minna Hakkarinen; Högskolan i Borås; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; lactic acid; thermoset resin; renewable resources; natural fibre; regenerated cellulose fibre; composite; Resursåtervinning; Resource Recovery;

    Abstract : Synthesis of polymers from renewable origin has been reported by many authors and it has been found out that it has enormous potential and can serve as alternative to conventional thermoplastics and thermosets in many applications. The use of these renewable resources will provide sustainable platforms to substitute fossil fuel-based materials. READ MORE

  5. 5. Modelling and Optimisation of Integrated Biotechnical Processes -Application to the Fermentative Production of Lactic Acid from Wheat Flour

    Author : Christina Åkerberg; Institutionen för kemiteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Chemical technology and engineering; economy; wheat flour; starch; lactic acid; kinetics; simulation; modelling; optimisation; Kemiteknik och kemisk teknologi;

    Abstract : Biotechnical processes are often integrated to increase productivity and yield. It is difficult to predict the effects of process integration and to find optimum conditions for the process. A valuable tool for the evaluation of a complete process is mathematical modelling. READ MORE
