Content of training

Plastic bags made of biodegradable polymers are a hygienic and convenient way to collect organic waste in our households. These plastic bags end up in private compost as well as in industrial compost. To ensure the entire degradation of the polymer material, it is mandatory to monitor the compost, which can present a number of challenges.

Learning targets

Understand the challenges of biodegradable polymers and learn more about the following topics:

  • How polymer biodegradation works
  • How to determine the degree of biodegradation of a polymer
  • How to choose the best extraction method for the determination of polymer biodegradation.
