Abstract (en)

For the production of biodegradable, compostable and recycling products, the material is a cake of sunflower or rape seed with an oil content of 20% and a protein content of 15%. It is wetted to give a moisture content of 5-55%. The cake is shaped in a press, with a mold of the product design. The molded material is heat dried, to stabilize it. The moisture content of the material is 10-25%, for heat shaping by pressure of 15-25 MPa at a temp. of 130-200 degrees C. The sunflower or rape seed material is initially given a mechanical treatment to break it down into homogenized granules with a mean diameter of 0.1-1.0 mm. The oil in the material is extracted partially, to give an oil content of 10% after drainage by trituration. The processed material is passed as a paste through a twin-screw extruder with, upstream to downstream, a chopper (8), a scraper (9), and if required, a bleed (11,12) for the liquid phase, and at least a reverse pitch module (10) to impose an axial compression on the solid matter, and an outlet (14). The twin-screw extruder has water injection (6,7) to set the moisture content of the material. The cake of sunflower or rape seed can be augmented by vegetable fibers.

Abstract (fr)

L'invention concerne un procédé de fabrication d'un objet biodégradable, compostable et recyclable, permettant en particulier de réaliser des conteneurs, emballages, panneaux, plaques.... Le procédé de l'invention consiste (a) à utiliser un tourteau de tournesol ou de colza ayant une teneur pondérale en huile inférieure à 20% et une teneur pondérale en protéines supérieure à 15 %, hydraté de façon à présenter un taux pondéral d'hydratation sensiblement compris entre 5% et 55%, (b) à opérer un formage par pressage dudit tourteau dans une forme adaptée à celle de l'objet désiré, et (c) à réaliser un traitement thermique ou un traitement de séchage en vue d'assurer une rigidification de l'objet en forme. <IMAGE>
