Biochar-red clay composites for energy efficiency as eco-friendly building materials- Thermal and mechanical performance
Abstract: Biochar and red clay were used to develop eco-friendly building materials with improved thermal and mechanical performance. Rice husk, coconut shell, and bamboo were prepared by thermally...
Insulative wood materials templated by wet foams
Abstract: Insulative materials are lightweight structures that prevent heat transfer. Plastic foams and vitreous wools are the main materials currently used for insulation in construction, although...
Multi-crosslinked, ecofriendly flame-retardant starch-based composite aerogels with high compression-resistance
Abstract: To achieve ecofriendly aerogels with high mechanics and fire resistance, naturally-occurring pea starch was employed as the major substrate, and starch-based composite aerogels were...
Performance Evaluation of Natural Composites Made from Banyan and Cotton Fibers for Sustainable Thermal Insulation Applications
Abstract: Natural composites are gaining more attention due to the light weight and low cost characteristics. In the present investigation, an attempt has been made to fabricate the natural...
Evaluation of Epoxidized Soybean Oil as a Green Admixture for Biobased Polymer–Impregnated Cement Pastes: Comparison with Dioctyl Terephthalate
Abstract: Biobased green plasticizers are preferred in the production of plastics in light of the environmental and human health issues posed by traditional plasticizers. Epoxidized soybean oil is an...
Developing flame-retardant lignocellulosic nanofibrils through reactive deep eutectic solvent treatment for thermal insulation
Abstract: The global consensus to pivot to a more sustainable lifestyle and achieve greater atom economy calls for not only sourcing advanced functional materials from biomass but also accomplishing...
Evaluation of the mechanical performance and sustainability of rubberized concrete interlocking masonry prism
Abstract: Waste materials may be used as raw materials for interlocking masonry products in order to contribute to sustainable development and environmental protection. Rubberized concrete...
Tailoring the thermomechanical behaviour of epoxy with the incorporation of bamboo and graphite filler
The present study is committed to overcome the problem associated with fiber orientation, delamination in composite material. Micro-sized bamboo particulate and graphite is selected as potential...
Thermal insulation and hydrophobization of wood impregnated with silica aerogel powder
The aim of the study was to develop a simple and cost-effective method to improve thermal insulation and hydrophobicity of wood. Herein, we attempted to use commercially available silica aerogel...
