Waste characterisation is an essential factor in designing sustainable waste management plan. However, waste composition profile is underestimated in oil and gas exploration and production (E&P) industries in the United Kingdom. A three years long in...

Mechanical, thermal, and flammability behaviour of low density polyethylene - oil based mud fillers nanocomposites. (2018)
Presentation / Conference
SIDDIQUE, S., SMITH, G.D., YATES, K. and NJUGUNA, J. 2018. Mechanical, thermal, and flammability behaviour of low density polyethylene - oil based mud fillers nanocomposites. Presented at the 4th International conference on structural nano composites (NANOSTRUC 2018), 23-24 May 2018, Berlin, Germany.

Novel low density polyethylene (LDPE)/Oil based mud fillers (OBMF) nanocomposites were manufactured by a melt compounding process. Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) Spectroscopy was used to characterise the structure of the nanocomposites. The result...
