Industrial solutions for biodegradable buffer materials

 
Background

With the continuous development of packaging industry, the demand for buffer packaging materials is growing up for the past decades. Expanded Polyethylene foam (EPE), Expanded polypropylene (EPP), expanded polystyrene (EPS) and foamed-polyvinyl alcohol (PVOH) are commonly used as buffer packaging materials. However, the degradable rate of traditional foaming material in the soil is very slow, causing the environment pollution. Many countries have issued the plastic ban to restrict the use of buffer packaging materials such as polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP). The biodegradable materials show an increasing demand for the disposable packaging materials.

Target

Proposing industrial solutions through the structural designing, formulation development, process optimization for the biodegradable buffer materials, which can not only meet performance requirements, but also adapt to industrial production.

Capability Required

Polymer engineering

Biodegradable wearable electronic devices

 
 Background

Wearable electronic devices such as smart bracelets and smart watches are rapidly integrating into our lives. However, e-waste is non-degradable and harmful, resulting in serious ecological pollution. The design and development of flexible, organic, biodegradable new electronic equipment is environmentally-friendly and has good biocompatibility, which can be applied to wearable devices, implantable devices and other electronic products.

Target

Designing and developing new polymers that can be both conductive and biodegradable. Inventing the electronic devices such as biodegradable circuit board and substrate materials. It is expected to be used for flexible biodegradable wearable devices to measure heart disease, blood pressure, glucose value and sweat content.
