Polímeros biodegradables a base de almidón y compuestos biodegradables
(Asociación para el Fomento de la Ciencia y de la Técnica, 2005-12)
Biodegradable plastics are a new generation of materials, still at an early stage of development is tied to the growth of composting infrastructures, to the definition of severe standards for biodegradability and compostability, ...
Effect of nanoclay addition on the biodegradability and performance of starch-based nanocomposites as mulch films
(Springer/Plenum Publishers, 2019-06-07)
The biodegradation and performance of potential agricultural mulch films prepared from native and oxidized corn starch nanocomposites with chitosan-modified bentonite were studied under simulated soil test conditions. ...
Biodegradation of textile wastewater: Enhancement of biodegradability via the addition of co-substrates followed by phytotoxicity analysis of the effluent
(IWA Publishing, 2018-05-31)
This work reports on the biodegradation of textile wastewater by three alternative microbial treatments. A bacterial consortium, isolated from a dyeing factory, showed significant efficacy in decolourizing wastewater (77.6 ...
Biodegradable plastics in aquatic ecosystems: Latest findings, research gaps, and recommendations
(IOP Publishing, 2022-03)
The negative impact of plastic accumulation in aquatic ecosystems is a known and undeniable problem. However, while many of the scientific community's countermeasures against such accumulation target the effects of the ...
Development of Biodegradable Films Based on Chitosan/Glycerol Blends Suitable for Biomedical Applications
(Omics International, 2016-12)
In the present work, chitosan/glycerol blends were used to prepare biodegradable films with potential applicationin dermal treatment. While the presence of glycerol gives the hydrating effect, the chitosan characteristics ...
