Wheat-gluten biocomposite films reinforced with rice husk
from SPE Plastics Research Online
Wheat gluten is a complex protein that has been investigated for its potential use in food and non-food applications such as food coatings, paints, adhesives, paper coatings, and cardboard or other biopackaging materials. Among these, plastic films are of special interest because they are so widely used. Because wheat gluten is a low-cost, renewable, and biodegradable resource, using it to make films offers an environmentally friendly alternative to petroleum-based products.
