Reseña del editor In today s world, bioplastics are becoming increasingly prominent owing mainly to scarcity of oil, increase in the cost of petroleum-based commodities, and growing environmental concerns with the dumping of non-biodegradable plastics in landfills. This book summarizes the field of bioplastics by illustrating how they form a unique class of research area that integrates pure and applied sciences such as chemistry, engineering and materials science, to initate solutions. Compelling science demystics this complex and often ambiguous branch of study for benefit of all those concerned with bioplastics. Contraportada This Handbook is the first to explore the extensive applicationsmade with bioplastics & biocomposites for the packaging,automotive, biomedical, and construction industries.Bioplastics and biocomposites are becoming increasinglyprominent because synthetic plastics and glass fiber composites areneither sustainable nor environmentally friendly.The Handbook of Bioplastics and Biocomposites EngineeringApplications brings together scientists from academia and industryto report on current research and applications in the bioplasticsand biocomposites arena. This new science is interdisciplinary andintegrates pure and applied sciences such as chemistry, engineeringand materials science. The Handbook focuses on five main categoriesof applications: Packaging; Civil Engineering; Biomedical;Automotive; General Engineering.The majority of the chapters review the properties, processing,characterization, synthesis and applications of the bio-based andbiodegradable polymers and composites including:Polymers such as polylactic acid (PLA), polyhydroxybutyrate(PHB), guar gum based plastics, cellulose polyesters, starch basedbioplastics, vegetable oil derived bioplastics, biopolyethylene,chitosan, etcThermoplastic and thermosetting bioplastics and biocompositeswith a focus on the automobile industryThe ways how to improve the properties of bioplastics, polymerblends, and biocomposites by combining them with both synthetic andnatural fillers and reinforcements such as nanoclays, nanotubes(CNTs), and natural fibers (both wood and plant fibers)Studies that expand the boundaries of bioplastics that willallow for the new materials to be applied to most genericengineering applications.The Handbook will be of central interest to engineers,scientists and researchers who are working in the fields ofbioplastics, biocomposites, biomaterials for biomedicalengineering, biochemistry, and materials science. The book willalso be of great importance to engineers in many industriesincluding automotive, biomedical, construction, and foodpackaging. Ver Descripción del producto
