Red Avenue New Materials & Beijing University of Chemical Technology (BUCT): the first "fully biodegradable shoes" released in Beijing

来源:     阅读:110

Recently, the "biodegradable polyester rubber" developed by BUCT and produced by Red Avenue New Materials has been successfully used in the field of sole materials. The world’s premiere ceremony of "fully biodegradable shoes" was held in Beijing.

The theme of this event was "innovation, low carbon, environmental protection and health". In addition to the biodegradable polyester rubber material produced by our group for the sole, the scientific research team also selected functional bio-based chemicals such as hemp fiber, bamboo fiber, and straw-based latex in the design and practice of the upper and insole, which provided rich imagination space for the further improvement of "fully biodegradable shoes" in the future.

Biodegradable polyester rubber was pioneered by Zhang Liqun of BUCT, our group's chief scientist in the field of rubber chemistry. With the strong support of the Advanced Elastomer Materials Research Center of  BUCT, it has gone through four generations of relay research and development of doctoral students. School-enterprise cooperation successfully completed the national "13th Five-Year" key research and development plan projects and realized the trial production of multi-component copolyester rubber. This bio-based synthetic rubber is internationally original rubber tested by China Petroleum and Chemical Industry Federation. After fully researching their degradable properties and service performance in different application scenarios to achieve the unity of opposites, it is expected to be widely used in many rubber fields, such as tires, shoes, special sealing rings, polylactic acid toughening, thermoplastic vulcanizates, etc.

This time, the "biodegradable polyester rubber" produced by our group has helped the world’s premiere of "fully biodegradable shoes", marking that the industrialization of this new rubber species has entered a critical stage.

In the future, based on the established development strategy, our group will continue to work with scientists in the main directions of rubber chemicals, advanced lithography and display materials, and green plastics to jointly build the independent, self-improving and local development of China's new material industry.
