  • Biodegradation of bloodmeal-based thermoplastics in green-waste composting

    Verbeek, Casparus Johan R.; Hicks, Talia; Langdon, Alan (Springer, 2011)
    Polymers that are compostable and manufactured from renewable resources have gained significant importance in recent years. The objective of this work was to assess the biodegradability of bloodmeal-based thermoplastics ...
  • Biofibre production from chicken feather

    Tseng, Fan-Chen Jeanie; Verbeek, Casparus Johan R. (2011)
    The global poultry industry generates at least 2 million tonnes of chicken feather every year. Feather fibre has potential as reinforcement for polymer composites with light-weight, thermal insulation and acoustic dampening ...
  • Blends of linear-low-density polyethylene and thermoplastic bloodmeal using maleic anhydride grafted polyethylene as compatibilizer

    Marsilla, K. I. Ku; Verbeek, Casparus Johan R. (Engineers Australia, 2012, 2012)
    Linear Low-Density Polyethylene (LLDPE) was blended with Novatein Thermoplastic from bloodmeal (NTP.) The compatibilizing effect of maleic anhydride grafted polyethylene (PE-g-MAH) on mechanical, morphology thermal properties ...
  • Closing the loop, adding value

    Verbeek, Casparus Johan R. (TCEtoday, 2015)
    This article describes an innovation which uses waste blood from meat processing to create a valuable bio-based plastic
  • Decoloring hemoglobin as a feedstock for second-generation bioplastics

    Low, Aaron; Lay, Mark C.; Verbeek, Casparus Johan R.; Swan, Janis E. (Taylor & Francis, 2012)
    The color of red blood cell concentrate (RBCC) limits its application in human food, but there is potential to use it for second-generation bioplastics. Several methods have been developed to remove color from RBCC, but ...
