  • Decolouring bloodmeal: Consumption and potential recycling of peracetic acid

    Hicks, Talia; Lay, Mark C.; Verbeek, Casparus Johan R.; Manley-Harris, Merilyn (Engineers Australia, 2012)
    A method of deodorizing and decolouring bloodmeal using an equilibrium mixture of peracetic acid, hydrogen peroxide, acetic acid and water has been developed to improve its marketability as a source of protein for ...
  • Degradation as a result of UV radiation of bloodmeal-based thermoplastics

    Verbeek, Casparus Johan R.; Hicks, Talia; Longdon, Alan (Elsevier, 2011)
    Polymers are known for their susceptibility to degradation as a result of ultra-violet (UV) radiation. In this study, the UV stability of bloodmeal-based thermoplastics (BMT) was evaluated over a period of 12 weeks. ...
  • Development of blood meal protein thermoplastic

    Verbeek, Casparus Johan R.; Marsilla, K. I. Ku (2011)
    Polymers are blended with other polymers to combine their properties or improve physical characteristics and blending turns to be the most reliable techniques compare to synthesis of chemically new polymers. In the research ...
  • An eco-profile of thermoplastic protein derived from blood meal Part 1: allocation issues

    Bier, James Michael; Verbeek, Casparus Johan R.; Lay, Mark C. (Springer, 2011)
    Purpose A renewable thermoplastic called Novatein Thermoplastic Protein (NTP) has been developed from blood meal—a low-value by-product of the meat processing industry. The aim of this research was to develop a non-renewable ...
  • An ecoprofile of thermoplastic protein derived from blood meal Part 2: thermoplastic processing

    Bier, James Michael; Verbeek, Casparus Johan R.; Lay, Mark C. (Springer-Verlag, 2012-03)
    Purpose The purpose of this research was to develop a nonrenewable energy and greenhouse gas emissions ecoprofile of thermoplastic protein derived from blood meal (Novatein thermoplastic protein; NTP). This was intended ...
