Skateboards as a Sustainable Recyclable Material
The exact number of skateboards manufactured every year is unknown, but it is estimated to be in the millions. Most skateboard decks are made from a high grade of maple (Acer spp.) veneer plywood and typically last only a ...
Comparison of the Economic Feasibility between Conventional and Vacuum Drying for 4/4 Red Oak
(FOREST PRODUCTS SOC, 2017-01-01)
Promoting enzymatic hydrolysis of lignocellulosic biomass by inexpensive soy protein
Abstract Background Liquid hot water (LHW) pretreatment has been considered as one of the most industrially viable and environment-friendly methods for facilitating the ...
The Influence of a Thermal Treatment on the Decay Resistance of Wood via FTIR Analysis
The decay resistance of wood can be improved via a vacuum heat treatment. The amount of nutrients from cellulose, hemicellulose, and lignin and amount of sugars needed by the fungi during their growth were investigated. ...
Utilization of Lignin in Biopolymeric Packaging Films
(ACS Publications, 2018-07-06)
Lignin is a byproduct of agricultural industries and only has limited applications. In this study, lignin was investigated for use in sustainable biopolymeric packaging film. Alkali lignin (AL) and lignosulfonate (LSS) ...
Nano@lignocellulose intercalated montmorillonite as adsorbent for effective Mn(II) removal from aqueous solution
(Springer Nature, 2018-07-18)
This paper describes the preparation of nano@lignocellulose (nano@LC) and a nano@lignocellulose/montmorillonite (nano@LC/MT) nanocomposite, as well as the capacity of the nano@LC/MT for adsorbing manganese ions from aqueous ...
Preliminary study of Cell Wall Structure and its Mechanical Properties of C3H and HCT RNAi Transgenic Poplar Sapling
(Springer Nature, 2018-07-12)
This research focused on the cell wall structure and its mechanical properties of down-regulated Coumaroyl shikimate 3-hydroxylase (C3H) transgenic poplar and down-regulated hydroxycinnamoyl CoA: shikimate hydroxycinnamoyl ...
Rheology of transgenic switchgrass reveals practical aspects of biomass processing
Abstract Background Mechanical properties of transgenic switchgrass have practical implications for biorefinery technologies. Presented are fundamentals for simple (thermo)mechanical ...
