Biodegradable Additive for the Construction Industry
This paper presents the patent of a new additive for the construction industry, which is obtained from the biomass residues of the wood industry. This additive is biodegradable and has fluidifying, foaming, plasticizing and stabilizing properties. When the additive is mixed with cement binder compositions, cement mortar and concrete, lightweight, flame-retardant cellular materials, thermal and acoustic insulators are obtained.

- This journal publishes high quality peer reviewed original research and review articles on macromolecules and additives obtained from renewable/biobased resources. Utilizing a multidisciplinary approach, JRM introduces cutting-edge research on biobased monomers, polymers, additives (both organic and inorganic), their blends and composites. JRM showcases both fundamental aspects and applications of renewable materials. The fundamental topics include the synthesis and polymerization of biobased monomers and macromonomers, the chemical modification of natural polymers, as well as the characterization, structure-property relationships, processing, recycling, bio and environmental degradation and life cycle analysis of the ensuing materials, in view of their potential applications. Within this sustainability approach, green chemistry processes and studies falling within biorefinery contexts are strongly favored.
