Description

Recycling of polyurethane (PU) wastes is carried out to minimise waste and reduce environmental pollution. In this book, these methods are investigated to find a suitable process for waste reduction, protecting the environment, and preventing landfilling. This book reviews aspects from contemporary literature (including our research) focusing on these topics. Recently, progress has been done by the author’s research team in chemical recycling of PU waste.

Recycling methods are stated clearly, as well as use of instrumental methods such as nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy and Fourier-Transform infrared spectroscopy for characterisation and identification of recycling products. This book provides new and exciting outlooks for finding suitable recycling methods, as well as the starting materials and intermediates for PU products.

About the author

In 1991 Mir Mohammad Alavi Nikje gained a BS degree in Applied Chemistry at the Faculty of Science, Tehran University, Iran. In continuation of his studies he gained an MS degree in Organic Chemistry and graduated in 1994.

In 2001 Alavi Nikje obtained his PhD degree in Organic Chemistry from Tehran Teacher University. During his MS and PhD studies, he was an advisor at the Engineering Research Center (ERI). In 2001 he became Assistant Professor of Organic Chemistry at Imam Khomeini International University (IKIU). He conducted research on polymer functionalizations, polyurethane chemistry and synthesis, nanocomposites and condensed polymer chemical recycling using conventional heating methods as well as microwave energy. He researched chemical recycling of polyurethanes, PC and PET wastes using conventional heating methods and MW in order to recover value monomers and oligomers both in the laboratory and industrially. In the past five years he has transferred his industrial know-how on chemical recycling of rigid, flexible and microcellular polyurethane wastes.

During the past decade he has published more than 200 papers, art works, presentations and patents. He became associated professor in 2008 and full professor in 2016.
