Barley straw (BS) and recycled high-density polyethylene (rHDPE) are wastes that representan environmental problem due to the large quantities that are generated each year and not subject to recycling processes. In this study, both residues were used in the manufacture of particleboard. The aim of this research was to characterize the mechanical an...

Morphological, chemical and mineralogical characterization of inorganic raw materials (pumicite and heavy clay) was carried out by SEM-EDS, XRF and XRD. It was found that pumicite shows the following composition; 71.78% SiO 2 , 14.83% Al 2 O 3 , 2.57% Fe 2 O 3 , 2.32% FeO, 2.37% Na 2 O, 4.12% K 2 O, 1.51% CaO and 0.5% P 2 O 5 . The major phase corr...

The germination process increases enzymatic activity. However, this does not occur in the same way in all cereals. It depends on the type of enzyme, the cereal, and the conditions of germination. During germination, most enzymes are localized in the aleurone layer and the scutellum. Some of them, such as xylanases, proteases, and β-glucanases, are...

The growing demand for barley has generated a high quantity of residues characteristic of its harvest. Due to the characteristics that these type of materials presented, are displayed as an alternative in the manufacture of particleboard. The objective of this research was to evaluate the feasibility of incorporating these residues as reinforcement...

The Agua Nueva Formation in the vicinity of Xilitla, State of San Luis Potosí, Central Mexico, consists of interbedded brown shale (Grayish orange 10YR 7/4 to Moderate yellowish brown 10YR 5/4) and dark-gray fossiliferous limestone (Bluish gray 5B 6/1 to Dark bluish gray 5B 4/1), varying between 10 and 20 cm in thickness. The sequence also includes...
