ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book provides a comprehensive description of traditional and innovative forest-based bioproducts, from pulp and paper, wood-based composites and wood fuels to chemicals and fiber-based composites. The descriptions of different types of forest-based bioproducts are supplemented by the environmental impacts involved in their processing, use, and end-of-life phase. Further, the possibility of reusing, recycling and upgrading bioproducts at the end of their projected life cycle is discussed. As the intensity of demand for forest biomass is currently changing, forest-based industries need to respond with innovative products, business models, marketing and management. As such, the book concludes with a chapter on the bioproducts business and these products role in bioeconomies.

Natural Fibre Composites

The use of Natural Fibre Composites (NFCs) in automotive and building industries is growing rapidly. NFCs are made from low cost, lighter and more renewable natural fibres. This book explores further potentinal of NFCs in developed and developing countries, using materials that are normally viewed as waste and simpler processing methods. Using Canada and Lesotho for case studies, raw materials and related institutional environment are surveyed. Choice of materials and processing methods for the composites are made on the basis of the surveyed factors. Some of the selected fibres are examined for their microstructural properties and their interactions with waste plastics in the composites. The composites are made and tested using fibres from Agave americana leaves/flax stalks and straw from corn/wheat stalks in waste Low Density Polyethyelene (bale wrap) and High Density Polyethylene (shopping bags). The environmental benefits of NFCs are demonstrated using a Life Cycle Assessment (LCA). This book challenges university graduate and undergraduate students to think outside the box when designing and creating the green materials.

Better Safe Than Sorry (eBook, PDF)

How toxic are the products we consume on a daily basis? Whether it?s triclosan in toothpaste, formaldehyde in baby shampoo, endocrine disruptors in water bottles, or pesticides on strawberries, chemicals in food and personal care products are of increasing concern to consumers. This book chronicles how ordinary people try to avoid exposure to toxics in grocery store aisles using the practice of ?precautionary consumption.? Through an innovative analysis of environmental regulation, the advocacy work of environmental health groups, the expansion of the health-food chain Whole Foods Market, and interviews with consumers, Norah MacKendrick ponders why the problem of toxics in the U.S. retail landscape has been left to individual shoppers?and to mothers in particular. She reveals how precautionary consumption, or ?green shopping,? is a costly and time-intensive practice, one that is connected to cultural ideas of femininity and good motherhood but is also most available to upper- and middle-class households. Better Safe Than Sorry powerfully argues that precautionary consumption places a heavy and unfair burden of labor on women and does little to advance environmental justice or mitigate risk.
