Projecttitel: Starch poly ethylene compounds in films with improved barrier characteristics
Penvoerder: Wageningen University & Research
Blends out of thermoplastic starch (TPS) and poly-ethylene (LDPE) are very interesting, because of cost price issues and sustainability aspects.
However, well performing blends based on the combination TPS and PE which are suitable for film blowing applications cannot be found in literature. In this project the focus will be on co-continuous systems. Key questions to be answered are:
