Antal Boldizar

Professor at Chalmers, Industrial and Materials Science, Engineering Materials

‚ÄčThe research on Environmentally Adapted Engineering Polymers is devoted to the complicated interplay between the material compositions, the processing performed, the subsequent material structure and the resulting properties. Current research deals with cellulosic fibres composites, the structure and mechanical properties of paper board, extrusion of multilayered materials, recycling of bio-plastics and recycling of plastics from electronic waste. The teaching concerns several courses, such as basic materials engineering and elective courses on polymer processing an environmental adaptation.
