Influence of Zeolite NaA on Thermogravimetric Behavior of Sodium Alginate for the Purpose of Processing Plastic Wastes
Thermogravimetric behavior of sodium alginate with incorporation of zeolite 4A has been studied. The experiments were performed at air flow rate of 30 ml/min, under heating rates of 5 ~ 30 K/min and up to 1250 K. Kinetic parameters for the main degradation phase thus were estimated by using the pseudo first-order assumption. The results have shown that the introduced zeolite as well as its content has obviously affected thermal properties of sodium alginate.
