A new biodegradable thermoplastic material based on a wheat flour byproduct has been developed. The influence of various additives (glycerol, silica) and fibers (flax, cotton, hemp) on the mechanical properties of the material has been investigated. The development of expanded materials is also presented. Copyright © 2010 Wiley-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim.

A new biodegradable thermoplastic material based on a wheat flour by-product has been developed. The influence of protein content in wheat flour on the mechanical properties of the material has been investigated. For protein content between 4% and 10%, no influence of the protein content was evidenced, whereas beyond 10% w/w of proteins in the wheat flour, the mechanical properties of agro-based materials decrease, thus confirming the advantage of using a wheat flour by-product (i.e. with protein content below 8% w/w).
