Aerobic biodegradation of butanol and diesel oil blends
(African Journal of Biotechnology, 2010-10-18) [Artigo]
This work aimed to evaluate the aerobic biodegradation of butanol/diesel oil blends (5, 10, 15, 20%, v/v) in comparison to the biodiesel/diesel oil blend (20%, v/v). Respirometric experiments simulating the contamination ...
Role of polyethylene-graft-glycidyl methacrylate compatibilizer on the biodegradation of poly(epsilon-calprolactone)/cellulose acetate blends
(Polymers For Advanced Technologies, 2009-12-01) [Artigo]
Biodegradable polymers provide an attractive solution to reduce environmental pollution caused by the accumulation of plastic waste in landfills. In this study, the effect of polyethylene-graft-glycidyl methacrylate ...
The influence of soil and landfill leachate microorganisms in the degradation of PVC/PCL films cast from DMF
(Polímeros, 2012-01-01) [Artigo]
While the use of plastics continues to increase in our daily lives in a growing range products, these materials are very persistent in the environment. The blending of aliphatic polyesters with other thermoplastic polymers ...
