    • Influence of microwave treatment conditions of GTR on physico-mechanical and structural properties of NBR/NR/GTR composites 

      Cañavate Ávila, Francisco Javier; Colom Fajula, Xavier; Saeb, Mohammad Reza; Przybysz, Marta; Zedler, Lukasz; Formela, Krzysztof (2019-07-01)
      Article
      Open Access
      The increasing amount of tires used in the industry induces the researchers to find alternatives to the recycling of the end-of-life tires. Several alternatives in order to application of ground tire rubber GTR include ...
    • Investigating the impact of curing system on structure-property relationship of natural rubber modified with brewery by-product and ground tire rubber 

      Zedler, Lukasz; Colom Fajula, Xavier; Cañavate Ávila, Francisco Javier; Saeb, Mohammad Reza; Haponiuk, Josef T; Formela, Krzysztof (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI), 2020-03-03)
      Article
      Open Access
      The application of wastes as a filler/reinforcement phase in polymers is a new strategy to modify the performance properties and reduce the price of biocomposites. The use of these fillers, coming from agricultural waste ...
    • Microwave treatment in waste rubber recycling – Recent advances and limitations 

      Formela, Krzysztof; Hejna, Aleksander; Zedler, Lukasz; Colom Fajula, Xavier; Cañavate Ávila, Francisco Javier (2019-06-01)
      Article
      Open Access
      Environmentally-friendly microwave heating is increasingly used in polymer chemistry and technology. The selectivity and highly efficiency in the heat transfer present a huge advantage in systems based on recycling, improving ...
    • Preliminary investigation on auto-thermal extrusion of ground tire rubber 

      Zedler, Lukasz; Kowalkowska-Zedler, Daria; Vahabi, Henri; Reza Saeb, Mohammad; Colom Fajula, Xavier; Cañavate Ávila, Francisco Javier; Wang, Shifeng; Formela, Krzysztof (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI), 2019-06-28)
      Article
      Open Access
      Ground tire rubber (GTR) was processed using an auto-thermal extrusion as prerequisite to green reclaiming of GTR. The reclaimed GTR underwent a series of tests: thermogravimetric analysis combined with Fourier-transform ...
    • Preparation and characterization of natural rubber composites highly filled with brewers' spent grain/ground tire rubber hybrid reinforcement 

      Zedler, Lukasz; Colom Fajula, Xavier; Reza Saeb, Mohammad; Formela, Krzysztof (Elsevier, 2018-07-15)
      Article
      Open Access
      Brewers' spent grain (BSG) and ground tire rubber (GTR) were applied as low-cost hybrid reinforcement natural rubber (NR). The impact of BSG/GTR ratio (in range: 100/0, 75/25, 50/50, 25/75 and 0/100 phr) on processing and ...
    • Reactive processing and functionalization of ground tire rubber 

      Zedler, Lukasz; Przybysz, Marta; Hejna, Aleksander; Colom Fajula, Xavier; Cañavate Ávila, Francisco Javier; Saeb, Mohammad Reza; Formela, Krzysztof (Springer, 2020)

      The dynamic development of the automotive industry resulted in a significant increase in rubber wastes, especially end-of-life tires, which are a serious threat to the natural environment and human health. This situation ...
    • Reactive sintering of ground tire rubber (GTR) modified by a trans-polyoctenamer rubber and curing additives 

      Zedler, Lukasz; Kowalkowska-Zedler, Daria; Colom Fajula, Xavier; Cañavate Ávila, Francisco Javier; Saeb, Mohammad Reza; Formela, Krzysztof (MDPI AG, 2020-12-17)
      Article
      Open Access
      The proposed method of ground tire rubber (GTR) utilization involves the application of trans-polyoctenamer rubber (TOR), a commercially available waste rubber modifier. The idea was to investigate the influence of various ...
    • Reclaimed rubber/poly(e-caprolactone) blends: structure, mechanical, and thermal properties 

      Hejna, Aleksander; Zedler, Lukasz; Przybysz, Marta; Cañavate Ávila, Francisco Javier; Colom Fajula, Xavier; Formela, Krzysztof (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI), 2020-05-25)
      Article
      Open Access
      The amount of elastomeric waste, especially from tires is constantly increasing on a globalscale. The recycling of these residua should be considered a priority. Compounding the waste rubberswith other polymers can be an ...
    • Synergistic effects of bitumen plasticization and microwave treatment on short-term devulcanization of ground tire rubber 

      Zedler, Lukasz; Klein, M.; Saeb, M.R.; Colom Fajula, Xavier; Cañavate Ávila, Francisco Javier; Formela, Krzysztof (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI), 2018-11-13)
