Brazil produces super plastic composites from plant waste

according to the scientific research foundation of Sao Paulo, Brazil, a research project presided over by Professor alsid Lopez Leon of the Department of Agronomy at the State University of Sao Paulo has extracted fibers from plant waste to produce a new generation of super plastics, which are lighter, stronger and meet ecological requirements than traditional polyethylene

however, we believe that since the 1990s, the research team has begun to extract raw materials from plant wastes, including natural cellulose in pineapple, banana, coconut, sisal and wood, and conduct experiments at the centimeter and millimeter levels. In the past two years, they have conducted nanoscale experiments and found that this kind of fiber has the strength similar to that of carbon fiber and glass fiber in the international architecture exhibition held in Las Vegas, and can be extracted as raw materials to produce plastics. Compared with the traditional plastics produced with oil and natural gas as raw materials, its products have the advantages of strength and durability. It is a new product

professor alsid Lopez said: "the machinery of this nano fiber" we are cooperating with important allies, and its characteristics have been greatly enhanced. The products made with this fiber are 30 times lighter than traditional products, and the strength is increased by 3 to 4 times. " The experiment carried out by the scientific research team in Braskem chemical company in Brazil showed that adding 2% nanofibers to the polypropylene produced by the company increased the strength of polypropylene by more than 50%. In the plastic injection molding experiments of components such as automobile bumpers, control panels, gearboxes, etc., plus 0.2% to 1.2% nanofibers, these components show greater strength and lighter weight than those on the current market
