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

By Michael Niaounakis

Biopolymers Reuse, Recycling and Disposal is the 1st publication masking all facets of biopolymer waste administration and post-usage eventualities, embracing present applied sciences, functions, and the habit of biopolymers in a number of waste streams.

The booklet investigates the advantages and weaknesses, social, monetary and environmental affects, and regulatory points of every know-how. It covers sorts of recycling and degradation, in addition to existence cycle research, all supported via case stories, literature references, and unique information regarding international 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 reminiscent of polymer technology, administration, biology and microbiology, natural chemistry, environmental chemistry, and patent legislation to supply a reference advisor for engineers, scientists and different execs occupied with the advance and construction of biopolymers, waste administration, and recycling. this data is additionally beneficial for regulators, patent lawyers and teachers operating during this field.

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