Billions of pounds of carpets are generated annually worldwide. A large percentage of which ends up in landfills is problematic because nylon is non-biodegradable.
Limitations in landfill capacity and the environmental impact of disposing of carpet waste in this manner have made recovering nylon from carpet waste an increasingly important enterprise.
Thermoelectric materials with a high efficiency that are used, for example, to generate electricity from heat, are naturally brittle and fragile. It would be much more user-friendly to use flexible materials. There are already thin plastic films, so-called PEDOT´s, which are flexible and can be applied over large areas at low cost. However, these have … Read moreFlexible layer structured Bi2Te3 thermoelectric on a carbon nanotube scaffold
