This article describes the technology of organic recycling of polylactide/halloysite biocomposites using the sugar- protein condensation theory. For this purpose, polymer biocomposites were produced with a polylactic acid structure and reinforced in the form of halloysite nanoparticles by 1; 2.5; and 5% by mass. A new method of decomposition of the...

The article presents results on the decomposition of polylactic acid (PLA)/halloysite nanotube (HNT) biocomposites. Experiments were carried out in laboratory conditions simulating composting in the industrial pile using the so-called short degradation method. In this paper, the effects of the composting process (duration from 30 to 90 days) on the...

The article presents the results of the research related to the decomposition of polylactic acid (PLA)/halloysite nanotube (HNTs) biocomposites into a simple organic form. After manufacturing the nanocomposites, the evaluation of the composting process simulation was conducted using the biodegradation method. First, the selected properties of PLA/H...

The study involved research related to the selection of the material with improved functional properties that can be used for dental prostheses. An innovative system of nanofillers, that differ in shape, by means of gelatin-modified halloysite nanotubes (HNTs-g) along with silane-coupled aluminum trihydrate (ATH-sil) was prepared, in order to obser...

This work has described the production of single-polymer composites by the film-stacking method. Two types of single-polymer composites with different mass fractions of the polyester reinforcement phase (10% and 20%) and the PETG matrix were investigated. The produced composites were subsequently recycled by injection moulding, pressing, and extrus...

... Polymers derived from renewable sources are currently a promising alternative to traditional so-called petrochemical polymers because they belong to the group of biodegradable materials, and by limiting the extraction of mine deposits, they reduce the formation of pollutants, including greenhouse gases (Auras et al., 2004;Garlotta, 2001;Liu et al., 2013;Singha and Thakur, 2009a;Uppal et al., 2022) and thus comply with the current laws and regulations regarding environmental protection (Singha and Thakur, 2009b;. One such polymer is polylactide (PLA) which can be modified with halloysite (nanotubes) (HNT) nanofillers (Czarnecka-Komorowska et al., 2021;Dubey et al., 2017). Due to the relatively low price and natural availability, HNT is an attractive and user-friendly polymer filler that can replace the more expensive carbon nanotubes in high-performance and multifunctional polymer nanocomposites. ...
... It is assumed that by 2025 the share of recycled plastics in new cars will amount to 25%, and by 2030 -30% [4]. Hence, it is important to work on the improvement and development of new technologies for recycling polymers waste [1,2,4,7,8]. From a production point of view, this waste should be treated as a valuable secondary material that can be recycled into the production of car parts (bumper, airbag, carpeting, radiator grills, headlight, etc.). ...
... Polymer Matrix Composites (PMC) can be an extremely beneficial solution in many aspects of engineering technology [1][2][3][4]. However, they can also significantly threaten the natural environment. ...
