Abstract

A process to produce nanoparticle of ZnO, Mg(OH)2 and Ag in large scale utilizing already available processes and raw materials in mining industry was developed. The nanoparticles were functionalized and mixed with polypropylene and polystyrene plastics and polyvinylchloride-wood composites in order to improve their UV protection, fire retardancy and antimicrobial/fungal properties. Additionally a life cycle analysis was performed to study the environmental effects related to the nanoparticle production and the effects were compared to the use of conventional additives in plastics.
