The development of eco-composites from renewable raw materials and recyclable thermoplastic polymers provides attractive eco-friendly quality and environmental sustainability, therefore it attracts increasing attention particularly for price driven and high volume applications (e.g. automotive, electrical/electronics,packaging, construction). In this work we produced new eco-friendly PP-based composites added with a low-cost sustainable filler, obtained from municipal solid waste incinerator (MSWI) residues by COSMOS technology [1-2]. The eco-composites were prepared by melt compounding and tested to verify the effects of the filler addition on the thermal, mechanical and electrical properties of PP. Moreover, in order to investigate the possibility to use the filler as adjuvant or as a replacement for conventional flame-retardants, ternary PP composite systems, containing also a commercial non-halogenated flame-retardant in the formulation, were produced and characterized.

Abstract

The development of eco-composites from renewable raw materials and recyclable thermoplastic polymers provides attractive eco-friendly quality and environmental sustainability, therefore it attracts increasing attention particularly for price driven and high volume applications (e.g. automotive, electrical/electronics,packaging, construction). In this work we produced new eco-friendly PP-based composites added with a low-cost sustainable filler, obtained from municipal solid waste incinerator (MSWI) residues by COSMOS technology [1-2]. The eco-composites were prepared by melt compounding and tested to verify the effects of the filler addition on the thermal, mechanical and electrical properties of PP. Moreover, in order to investigate the possibility to use the filler as adjuvant or as a replacement for conventional flame-retardants, ternary PP composite systems, containing also a commercial non-halogenated flame-retardant in the formulation, were produced and characterized.
