Abstract


Depletion of world resources, increasing pollution and climate change effects, make it necessary a shift from linear economy to systemic economy an economy of technologies integrated to reach a non-polluting, zero emissions production system. Transition to renewable resources requires replacing the existing crude oil refinery with biomass refinery. Along with conventional biomass refinery technologies, bioengineering and nano-technologies are becoming significant players of systems in the design of clusters of integrated biorefinery technologies. This study presents a set of samples obtained by combining biomass waste such as wood waste with other types of recyclable construction waste compatible with the new material. In the context of the growing economy of raw materials, it is considered necessary to develop a material capable of absorbing as much waste as possible from nearby areas. Thus, the investigated samples are presented and analyzed to highlight their physicochemical properties and compatibility with integrated waste and, last but not least, to significantly improve these characteristics by introducing nanoparticles obtained by plasma conversion of municipal waste.
