A new report on ‘Biodegradable Polymers for Industrial Applications’ explores the fundamental concepts of the development of biodegradable polymers, degradable polymers from sustainable sources, degradation and properties and industrial applications. Materials available for the production of biodegradable polymers are explored. The properties and mechanisms of degradation are looked at, prefaced with a chapter on current standards. The final part explores opportunities for industrial applications, with chapters on packing, agriculture and biodegradable polycaprolactone foams in supercritical carbon dioxide. The report is priced at €246 for a hard copy.
