Abstract

Synergistic green composites of polypropylene (PP) with cardboard and waste paper are produced via solid- state shear pulverization (SSSP) without any compatibilizers or surface modification. The property enhancements are comparable to those from more expensive forms of cellulose. Additionally, optimization of SSSP processing, commercial viability and melt processability of the composites are evaluated.
