INNOVATIVE MOLECULAR MODELLING APPROACH TO UP-GRADE POLYMERIC MATERIALS FROM POST INDUSTRIAL REJECTS

Objective

The principal aim of this project is the study and development of tailor made multicomponentpolymeric blends coming from post-industrial rejects, suitable to embed Nan particles. The novel materials will be addressed to multicultural applications such as lighting, automotive, textile and buildings, using different technologies such as injection moulding, fibre spinning and extrusion. The task will be accomplished through the integration of molecular modelling in rational design process, considering main aspects, which characterise the development of novel materials: characteristics expected, components to gain the desired properties, technologies available to processmaterials. In a context of sustainability, up-grading post industrial rejects goes beyond simple re-use and aim to obtain eco-designed materials from sources that actually represent a production cost and are waste problem. Through structured particles embedding, polymers matrices reaches high level of competitiveness towards raw materials. Project will investigate aspects regarding micro-structured phase behaviour of matrices themselves, interfaces between structured materials and matrices to obtain thermal resistance and stability, combined with transparent aspect and mechanical resistance, which are basic for the applications named before. Project will explore also how injection moulding, extrusion, and fibre spinning technologies can respond to the need of an economic way to process novel composites. The consortium consists of 10 partners from 3 different EC states, 2 different AC and 1 Mediterranean country.
Universities (4), Research institutes (2), and Sees (4) are represented in the team. In particular the project will considerably contribute to strengthen ERA bringing together researchers from east Europe and Mediterranean country with EC states.
