Anaerobic Biodegradation of PolymerAuthor(s): Priyanshu Sharma
Melt blending polymer composites with natural fibers were examined. Poly (lactic acid), polyhydroxy butyrate-co-polyhydroxy vale rate, and low-density polyethylene were among the synthetic and natural macromolecules used. Flax fibers were used to fill these polymers. The mechanical properties of the composites, as well as biogas production and mass loss during anaerobic digestion, are discussed. After 28 days of biodegradation, the mechanical properties were found to be stable.
