New research suggests that using waste recycling as a way to recycle waste into new, more sustainable products could help reduce the world’s greenhouse gas emissions.
The research was published in the journal Nature Communications on Tuesday.
The researchers, led by Dr. Stephen R. Brown from the Institute of Materials Science and Technology at the University of Manchester, used a carbon nanotube-based material called waste to make an artificial sponge that can be used as a material to collect and process waste.
The sponge can then be mixed with waste to form a new polymer called polyacrylamide (PAA).
Scientists previously thought that the PAA could be used to make new, high-quality plastic and ceramics.
But PAA, which is the same chemical found in plastics and paints, is a poor recycler.
PAA is used to manufacture plastics and other plastics, but in its natural state, it can be extremely brittle.
To get around this, the researchers used PAA as a catalyst to break down the polymer.
They then used the Paa as a catalytic medium for the production of a new kind, called an ‘antibiotic membrane’ for the purpose of removing waste from the environment.
The PAA membrane can be formed in a variety of ways, such as as forming a sponge, forming a polyurethane shell or creating a biocompatible material called polyethylene.
The researchers suggest that this membrane could be useful in recycling waste into a range of materials, including biodegradable plastic, ceramicals, and other organic materials.
“This study is an exciting step towards understanding the use of biocarbon nanotubes as a waste-disposal material, and how this could be applied to our current and future recycling schemes,” said Brown.
“These new materials will be an important catalyst for reducing carbon emissions and potentially improving our lives.”
