Plastic components with longer service life

23 percent of global energy consumption can be attributed to friction losses. Components with reduced friction therefore represent an important contribution to conserving resources and achieving climate protection targets. In the case of plastics, reduced friction can also reduce microplastics in the environment. With the development of microcapsules filled with liquid lubricants for plastics, the Read more about Plastic components with longer service life[…]

Upcycling of Post-Consumer PLA Waste: A Gateway to “Circular Bio-Economy”

Designed for performance and durability, synthetic plastics have become indispensable as “materials of every-day use”. However, their indiscriminate disposal has led to an acute problem of plastic pollution. In order to solve this issue, the European Union not only tries to implement a circular system to reuse, repair and recycle plastics (circular economy) but it Read more about Upcycling of Post-Consumer PLA Waste: A Gateway to “Circular Bio-Economy”[…]
