The valorization of plastic solid waste (PSW) by primary to quaternary routes: From re-use to energy and chemicals
Polymers are the most versatile material in our modern day and age. With certain chemicals and additives (pigments, concentrates, anti-blockers, light transformers (LTs), UV-stabilizers, etc.), theyExpand

Gas retention in fine-grained pyroclastic flow materials at high temperatures
The ability of a dense pyroclastic flow to maintain high gas pore pressure, and hence low friction, during runout is determined by (1) the strengths and longevities of gas sources, and (2) theExpand
