Plastics and the Environment
371,00 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Plastics offer a variety of environmental benefits. However, their production, applications, and disposal present many environmental concerns. Plastics and the Environment provides state-of-the-art technical and research information on the complex relationship between the plastic and polymer industry and the environment, focusing on the sustainability, environmental impact, and cost--benefit tradeoffs associated with different technologies. Bringing together the field's leading researchers, Anthony Andrady's innovative collection not only covers how plastics affect the environment, but also how environmental factors affect plastics. The relative benefits of recycling, resource recovery, and energy recovery are also discussed in detail. The first of the book's four sections represents a basic introduction to the key subject matter of plastics and the environment; the second explores several pertinent applications of plastics with environmental implications-packaging, paints and coatings, textiles, and agricultural film use. The third section discusses the behavior of plastics in some of the environments in which they are typically used, such as the outdoors, in biotic environments, or in fires. The final section consists of chapters on recycling and thermal treatment of plastics waste. Chapters include: * Commodity Polymers * Plastics in Transportation * Biodegradation of Common Polymers * Thermal Treatment of Polymer Waste * Incineration of Plastics The contributors also focus on the effectiveness of recent technologies in mitigating environmental impacts, particularly those for managing plastics in the solid waste stream. Plastic and design engineers, polymer chemists, material scientists, and ecologists will find Plastics and the Environment to be a vital resource to this critical industry.

Handbook of Manufacturing Processes
138,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Overview Unlike any other reference, Handbook of Manufacturing Processes is an in-depth compilation of the workings of more than 1500 different manufacturing processes in metalworking, chemicals, textiles, plastics, ceramics, electronics, wood and food industries; as well as how more than 600 important products, components, materials are made. Logically organized in two sections -- a process section and a products section -- it describes clearly and succinctly the operations performed in the worlds factories. Heavily illustrated, it is a comprehensive source of technical manufacturing information that manufacturing engineers and managers, process engineers, and anyone who has an interest in or needs to know about manufacturing operations and products will not easily find anywhere else.

Modification of Fibres for Technical Applications
177,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The book deals with the physical and chemical modification of natural and synthetic fibres for technical applications. Natural fibres and synthetic fibres/ filaments are often inadequate to be used in technical textiles. The high level of moisture absorption of natural fibres, poor wettability by non-polar plastics, and insufficient adhesion between untreated fibres and the polymer matrix, result in poor properties in composites. Synthetic fibres often lack the required mechanical and thermal properties to be used for technical applications. The book will thus encompass methods to physically and chemically modify fibres for technical applications.
