Poly (Lactic Acid) (PLA)/Recycled Styrene Butadiene Rubber (rSBR) Composites

Received: 01 March 2022;  Published: 11 April 2022;  doi: 10.21926/aeer.2202012

Abstract

Recycled styrene butadiene rubber (rSBR) from waste car tires was used as a filler in poly(lactic) acid (PLA) to modify its properties. The compounds were prepared via twin-screw extrusion and molded by injection with different rSBR contents (0 to 25% wt.). Additionally, recycled rubber [...]

Cyanobacterial Blooms and Their Implications in the Changing Environment

Received: 03 January 2022;  Published: 16 March 2022;  doi: 10.21926/aeer.2201011

Abstract

Cyanobacteria are the most ancient phytoplankton that first appeared at least 2.5 billion years ago and have a prolonged evolutionary history. They can form impenetrable and toxic blooms in aquatic ecosystems such as freshwater and marine environments. Cyanobacterial blooms produce cyanotoxins that [...]

How Might Changing Climate Limit Cyanobacteria Growth in Shallow Prairie Lakes? An Empirical Space-For-Time Evaluation of the Potential Role of Increasing Sulfate

Received: 20 November 2021;  Published: 15 February 2022;  doi: 10.21926/aeer.2201007

Abstract

Cyanobacteria blooms alter aquatic ecosystems and occur frequently in shallow prairie lakes, which are predicted to increase in salinity as the regional climate becomes hotter and drier. However, flat landscapes that experience depression bottom salinity with high concentrations of sulfa [...]
