It has also attempted to prepare PU composite encapsulated fertilizers that can be maintained for longer time by slow releasing in the soil [169]. 5 Lignin PU Composites Filled with Various Kinds of Wastes from Agriculture, Fishery, Textile, and Food Industries Lignin PU composites filled with chitin Chitin is the 2nd major biomaterial produced in the world. As a residue of food industry and fishery, it is a resource which has not been fully utilized. Lignin PU filled with chitin powder was prepared and its physical properties were investigated.

However, the industrial waste fabrics are discarded without recycling. Figure 47 shows scanning electron micrographs of composites. Waste fabric obtained from the clothing industries consists of various kinds of fabrics. The materials and sizes are in a wide range. Part of a photo (Fig. 47a) is magnified (Fig. 47b). Cellulose fibre is clearly seen. Although the photos are not shown, wool and polyester fibers can be identified. 5 × 10−8 m2 s−1 respectively. Thermal diffusivity decreases with increasing filler content.

Figure 29 shows the relationship between thermal conductivity and LSD content. Time maintained for the equilibration did not affect the results, when time exceeded 20 min. With increasing LSD content, thermal conductivity increased slightly. The above results were compared with commercial grade polyurethane and polystyrene foams. The results are shown in Table 3. The data suggests that the thermal conductivity of PU foams derived from lignin and molasses can be used as alternative materials derived from petroleum.
