Development of Biochar based Plastic Composite Materials

The proposed research focuses on developing biochar-plastic composite materials to support the product development goals of the industry partners. In this study, the intern will be accessing the effect of biochar properties and extrusion conditions on the properties of biochar-plastic composite materials and identify an optimum operating condition and formulation that results in higher mechanical properties. The project outcome will help to overcome current challenges faced by the industry partner in the product development and marketing.
