A novel high pressure vessel intended for laboratory scale manufacturing of polymer-based three-dimensional composites is developed. The device features easy operation, split mould, metal-to-metal seals and does not require electric power.
Overpollution of environment with highly resistant to degradation petroleum-based plastics is gaining more and more attention. Development of degradable plastic materials is a promising environmentally sound solution that can reduce environmental burden, greenhouse gas emissions and dependence on petroleum resources. In this view, use of renewable biomass resources in manufacturing tailored biodegradable plastics represents a sustainable strategy for upcoming future.
