Life cycle assessment of wood-plastic composites: Analysing ...Environmental impacts of upstream and downstream of WPC were analysed by LCA methods. . Substitution potentials of alternative materials for WPC were addressed. . Recycling was found to be the favourable end-of-life of WPC. . This is in contrast to the applied disposal pathway of WPC today. Abstract. In the drive towards a sustainable Bioeconomy, a growing in

Researchers develop biodegradable substitutes for wood, plastic ...17 Mar 2009 ... The faux lumber is made from a new biodegradable plastic that could be used in a variety of building materials and perhaps replace the petrochemical plastics now used in billions of disposable water bottles. "This is a great opportunity to make products that serve a societal need and respect and protect the natural environment," said lead researcher Sarah Billington, an associate professor of civil and environmental engineering. In 2004, Billington and her colleagues ...

Tequila waste combined with recycled plastic to form wood substitute21 Jan 2015 ... When the sap from plants such as sugar cane is extracted for commercial use, what's left over is a fibrous material known as bagasse. Now, Mexican startup Plastinova is using agave bagasse from the tequila industry to make a wood-like material, although it's also incorporating recycled plastic.

Wood Plastic Composites - InTechOpen9 Sep 2011 ... wood plastic Composites. 327. 3. Applications. Advantages, desired properties, environmental regulations, and awareness have led to the substitution of using conventional woods with the WPC. Its production is growing over time due to its several applications (Adhikary, et al. 2008). Main motives include: . It can be molded in any particular mold with a variety of shapes and angles, so it can give any desired design (Takatani, et al. 2007). . It can be treated in the ...

Recycled Plastic Wood | Profiles - KedelRecycled plastic wood, Alternatively known as recycled plastic lumber is an environmentally friendly substitute to traditional building materials. We have the best prices around.

Green alternative to plastics: liquid wood - Technology & science ...22 Dec 2008 ... Just in time for Christmas, German researchers are ramping up a manufacturing technique for making intricate Nativity figurines, toys, and even hi-fi speaker boxes from a renewable and surprisingly versatile source: liquid wood. The bio-plastic dubbed Arboform, derived from wood pulp-based lignin, can be mixed with hemp, flax or wood fibers and other additives such as wax to create a strong, nontoxic alternative to petroleum-based plastics, according to its ...

Stanford researchers develop biodegradable substitutes for wood ...17 Mar 2009 ... The best turned out to be natural hemp fibers fused with a biodegradable plastic resin called polyhydroxy-butyrate (PHB). "It's quite attractive looking and very strong," said EVP collaborator Craig Criddle, a professor of civil and environmental engineering. "You can mold it, nail it, hammer it, drill it, a lot like wood. But bioplastic PHB can be produced faster than wood, and hemp can be grown faster than trees." The hemp-PHB biocomposites are stable enough to use in ...

Plastic Wood a new material that is replacing lumber in construction11 Jun 2013 ... plastic wood is most commonly made from high-density polyethylene, polypropylene or polystyrene often recovered from waste. The plastic is combined with wood waste which can be collected from a variety of sources including sawmills and construction sites. The collected wood shavings and splinters are ground into a fine powder and mixed with the plastic. Some plastic wood manufacturers don't even use wood. Instead they substitute agricultural fibers and in ...

materials - Best plastic composite alternative to wood ...For impact: m a x = v V E ( 1 + + 2 3 ). Where: V = g E . g is Gravitational constant. E is Young's modulus. is the weight per unit volume. is the ratio of ball mass to bar mass. v is velocity of impacting ball. Per Roark's Formula's for stresses and strains 7th edition, this can be shown that as approaches , then m a x will approach 2 times the case if the mass was placed on the bar and allowed to deflect under gravity. In that case, we'll run with 2 times the ball ...
