Towards Circular Economy: Different Strategies for Polyurethane Waste Recycling and the Obtaining of New Products
As a consequence of the high production and simultaneous consumption of polyurethanes (PU) a great volume of PU waste is landfilled. In this scenario, suitable and efficient routes for PU waste recycling have been searched ...
Influence of Process Parameters in Graphene Oxide Obtention on the Properties of Mechanically Strong Alginate Nanocomposites
Sodium alginate, a biopolymer extracted from brown algae, has shown great potential for many applications, mainly due to its remarkable biocompatibility and biodegradability. To broaden its fields of applications and improve ...
Lignocellulosic Biomass as a Source of Raw Materials for the Synthesis of Polyurethanes
Precursors have been satisfactorily synthesized from lignocellulosic biomass for later use in the synthesis of polyurethanes resulting in competitive final properties with those of petroleum derived polyurethanes
