Topics covered in the area of advanced ceramic include bioceramics, nanomaterials,... more...

  • Handbook on Material and Energy Balance Calculations in Material Processingby Arthur E. Morris; Gordon Geiger; H. Alan Fine

    Wiley 2012; US$ 159.95 US$ 143.96

    Lately, there has been a renewed push to minimize the waste of materials and energy that accompany the production and processing of various materials. This third edition of this reference emphasizes the fundamental principles of the conservation of mass and energy, and their consequences as they relate to materials and energy. New to this edition are... more...

  • Handbook of Biodegradable Polymersby Catia Bastiolo

    iSmithers Rapra Publishing 2014; US$ 215.00

    Biodegradable polymers are niche market materials finding focused applications, including agricultural applications such as mulch films, flowerpots and controlled-release fertilisers and packaging items such as carrier bags and food wrapping and containers. They have the potential to provide a solution to a range of environmental concerns: decreasing... more...

  • Advances in Recycling and Deinkingby Pira International Ltd

    iSmithers Rapra Publishing 2006; US$ 460.00

    Paper recycling in an increasingly environmentally conscious world is gaining importance. Increased recycling activities are being driven by robust overseas markets as well as domestic demand. Recycling technologies have been improved in recent years by advances in pulping, flotation deinking and cleaning/screening, resulting in the quality of paper... more...

  • Development in Biological Fibre Treatmentby Pira International Ltd

    iSmithers Rapra Publishing 2007; US$ 460.00

    Biological treatments for fibres seem like the perfect solution for reducing the output of harmful chemicals in papermaking. However they have also proved themselves to be able to reduce costs, improve efficiency and generally work more effectively than their synthetic rivals. But while enzymes have been used in certain paper processes for a number... more...

  • Chemical Recovery in Pulp and Papermakingby Pira International Ltd

    iSmithers Rapra Publishing 2008; US$ 380.00

    This study forms part of a suite of three technology studies from Pira focusing on chemical, water and energy recovery in pulp and paper making. With today's increasingly high energy and chemical costs and stringent environmental regulations, the need for improved recovery of chemicals from the pulp and paper making process has become a critical... more...

  • Developments in Smart Papersby Pira International Ltd

    iSmithers Rapra Publishing 2006; US$ 460.00

    Smart paper is defined as paper or board that incorporates an electronic capability achieved through the laying down of conductive inks, polymers or semiconducting polymers onto the surface of the paper or board. There is an interest in the potential of smart paper products - either in the products themselves or in the capability offered by the technology... more...

  • Developments in Tree Cloningby Pira International Ltd

    iSmithers Rapra Publishing 2007; US$ 460.00

    The advantages of tree cloning are clear; uniform tree growth enabling guaranteed yield, high density wood with no imperfections and potentially quicker growth rates to improve turnaround. These all equal massive efficiency gains at the paper mill. But how is this technology developing, what are the disadvantages and barriers and how will it affect... more...

  • Emerging Technologies in Wet End Chemistryby Pira International Ltd

    iSmithers Rapra Publishing 2005; US$ 460.00

    At the wet end of a paper machine, papermakers already use various chemical additives to enhance end-use performance and manufacturing efficiency. This study looks at emerging strategies that can help papermakers leverage their investments in papermaking equipment and deal with new challenges, including new end-use applications for paper, a need to... more...

  • Emerging Technologies in Flocculationby Pira International Ltd

    iSmithers Rapra Publishing 2005; US$ 460.00

    Recent work suggests that if it were practical to form perfectly uniform paper, the tensile strength might be twice that of conventionally formed paper. This would mean papermakers could achieve equivalent product performance with less material. If technology could take us even half way, material savings could be tens of billions of Euros per year... more...
