Plastics

The US Department of Energy (DOE) announced up to $25 million in funding for plastics recycling research and development (RD) The funding opportunity announcement (DE-FOA-0002245) is part of the Department's Plastics Innovation Challenge a comprehensive program to accelerate innovations in plastics recycling technologies

1 Introduction

One of the main factors affecting the mechanical properties of fiber-reinforced composites is the adhesion between the fiber and matrix The use of a compatibilizer can increase adhesion and hence improve the mechanical properties of the composite Figure 5 (a) shows an improvement in tensile strength as the composition of PE-g-MA in the composites increases for both UKF and TKF The
