bio composite hulls

Pea starch-based composite films with pea hull fibers and pea hull

New applications of both pea hull fiber (PHF) and PHF- derived nanowhiskers (PHFNW), isolated from PHF by acid-hydrolysis, as fillers in starch-based biocomposite films were explored in this work. Two series of films were prepared by blending pea starch (PS), respec- tively, with PHF and PHFNW. The effects of PHF and.

Biocomposite - Wikipedia

Biocomposite (bio from Greek 'alive') is a composite material formed by a matrix (resin) and a reinforcement of natural fibers. These kind of materials often mimic the structure of the living materials involved in the process keeping the strengthening properties of the matrix that was used, but always providing biocompatibility.
