9780080453712: Compostable Polymer Materials

Compostable plastics undergo degradation by biological process during composting to yield CO2, water, inorganic compounds, and biomass at a rate consistent with other known compostable materials and leave no visible, distinguishable or toxic residue. Compostable packaging materials made from biopolymers are being introduced into the market to reduce the amounts of conventional packaging materials and at the same time allow recovery by municipal organic waste collection systems. Current legislation encourages polymer processors to seek more environmentally friendly materials with sustainable life cycles. Composting at the end of life will become an increasingly attractive route for the disposal of redundant polymers. This book provides up-to-date results and information about compostable polymer materials in a coherent and comprehensive manner. It covers the entire spectrum of preparation, properties, degradation, and environmental issues. The emphasis is on recent studies concerning compostability and ecotoxicological assessment of polymer materials - important issues from the ecological point of view. Moreover, the thermal behaviour of compostable polymers is described. Their price evolution over the last decade, an estimation of the market and future perspectives are presented. . Comprehensive and up-to-date information about polymers specially designed to be disposed after their useful life by means of composting in industrial and municipal composting facilities . Focus on composting process and compostability standards . Ecotoxicological assessment of polymers - relevant test methods and up-to-date studies . Description of labelling systems in different regions of the world . Evaluation of market for compostable polymer materials over the past decade, including price evolution . Special chapter concerning thermal behaviour of compostable polymer materials (thermal and thermooxidative degradation), including survey of thermal stability . Overview of methods of preparations, physical-chemical and mechanical properties, as well as processing parameters of compostable polymer materials
