Polymer composite is a hot topic for a huge number of applications. From aerospace to everyday life, composites are becoming very popular. However, two issues have to be duly considered when a large-scale application is targeted, namely the economic and the environmental impact point of view. For the first, it will be critical to decrease the composite price while improving the properties (e.g. mechanical, electrical ones). For the second, to use of recycled or bio-derived materials is sought. In particular, in the field of polymer composites with carbon fillers, a recent trend is to use biochar in substitution to the other carbon fillers (e.g. carbon nanotubes, graphene). Biochar is a charcoal used normally as a soil amendment in agriculture. However, as it is stable and rich in carbon. Because of its high carbon content, it is a good candidate as a substitute for costlier and higher environment impact carbon forms. In this work, we will present recent achievements in the field of polymer composite based on biochar and will compare results obtained used biochar with those obtained with the other carbon fillers.

Abstract

Polymer composite is a hot topic for a huge number of applications. From aerospace to everyday life, composites are becoming very popular. However, two issues have to be duly considered when a large-scale application is targeted, namely the economic and the environmental impact point of view. For the first, it will be critical to decrease the composite price while improving the properties (e.g. mechanical, electrical ones). For the second, to use of recycled or bio-derived materials is sought. In particular, in the field of polymer composites with carbon fillers, a recent trend is to use biochar in substitution to the other carbon fillers (e.g. carbon nanotubes, graphene). Biochar is a charcoal used normally as a soil amendment in agriculture. However, as it is stable and rich in carbon. Because of its high carbon content, it is a good candidate as a substitute for costlier and higher environment impact carbon forms. In this work, we will present recent achievements in the field of polymer composite based on biochar and will compare results obtained used biochar with those obtained with the other carbon fillers.
