Bioplastics fillers developed by the hottest Agric

  • Detail

The United States agricultural research laboratory has developed bioplastic fillers

the northern Central Agricultural Research Laboratory in Brooking, South Dakota, (2) according to the use of the machine and the service life of the oil, it belongs to the United States Agricultural Service (ARS). It is understood that the preliminary research conducted by the laboratory in cooperation with the University of Northern Illinois (NIU) shows that, Corn is used as raw material to produce ethanol (corn ethanol). The by-product of fermentation can be used as plastic filler for non petrochemical production. This ethanol fermentation by-product is named dry distiller's grains containing soluble substances. It has the characteristics of high fiber content and is suitable for binding with other molecules with molecular structure. Ars agricultural engineering peek resin has outstanding sliding properties in all plastics. Kurt rosentrator believes that the above two properties make it very likely to be used as plastic filler

rosentrator and Robert atatara of the NIR process department prepared the compression molding products of the blends of DDGS and phenolic resin. It is found that when the DDGS content is 25% - 5O%, the application prospect of the blend is promising. So far, only limited physical property data of ddgs/phenolic resin blends have been obtained, and further research is in progress. Researchers also found that DDGS and dry distiller's grains may be used as substitutes for biological fillers (bamboo, dry sugarcane, corn straw, soybean skin and chicken feather), which has been considered by researchers as a way to reduce the oil consumption of plastic products

Rosen's early work is to develop the method of preparing granular materials by DDGS. In 2007, the United States produced about 6.5 billion U.S. gallons (24.5 billion L) of fuel ethanol, and the production target in 2008 was 9billion U.S. gallons (34 billion L). According to the data provided by the National Renewable Fuels Association of the United States, South Dakota is one of the major producers of corn ethanol fuel. The annual production capacity in 2007 was 10 billion U.S. gallons (3.8 billion L)
