Highly Flame Retardant Green Composites Using Seashells

from SPE Plastics Research Online

Increasing seafood consumption has led to generation of a large volume of seashell waste that is essentially treated as useless and dumped onto reclaimed land or into coastal waters. Seashells are mainly composed of calcium carbonate (CC), mineral oxides, and organic materials. When decomposing, seashells produce gases whose odor and toxicity are hazardous to human health. Because CC is one of the most commonly used inorganic fillers, recycling seashells offers a means of using this material productively, for example, as soil conditioners, low-cost absorbents, and as biofiller in polymers. more
