Starch-based bioplastics are prepared from the waste of food materials and are widely used as the short-lived biodegradable plastic for household and food packaging applications. In this work, glycerol plasticized starch (extracted from potato peels)bioplastics blended with Polyvinyl Alcohol (PVA) in various compositions (wt.-%) were prepared, and...
Environmental, economic, and waste management concerns are growing as a result of the proliferation of plastics in the environment. As a potential solution to the problem of plastic pollution, glycerol plasticized starch-based bioplastics were investigated for their biodegradability. There are numerous uses of starch, a biopolymer derived from orga...
Plasticizers are the binding substances used to increase the elasticity of materials. In this research work, bioplastic is extracted from banana peels using various plasticizers such as, glycerol, urea, distilled water and glucose. The prepared bioplastics were characterized by using Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) spectroscopic anal...
The market for solar pumps is rapidly increasing due to rapidly declining costs and technology improvements that are replacing traditional manual (hand) pumps, mechanical windmills, and diesel engines around the globe. They are also reducing the demands on local and national power grids. Solar pumping has become a significant and growing niche for...
Solar water pumping is a mature, reliable, and economically attractive solution for off-grid irrigation, livestock water, and community water supply. With increasing reliance on water pumping for food security needs, and limited access to conventional energy sources for many communities most in need of water pumping, development programs around the...
