Zijn oxo-degradeerbare kunststoffen wel of niet biodegradeerbaar? Onderzoek moet uitsluitsel geven

29 oktober 2014

Oxo-degradable plastics are claimed to be biodegradable, although not everyone agrees. Currently the European Commission is considering a possible ban on oxo-degradable carrier bags. Also in France a group of MPs in the French National Assembly have called for a similar ban.
Last year, OWS performed a desk research study on bio- and oxo-degradable plastics. A conclusion was that independent proof (or disproof) is today not (yet) available. In this context, OWS, together with IKT-University Stuttgart, is setting up a project with the aim to find a “once and for all” (independent) answer on whether oxo-degradable plastics are biodegradable or not (Nieuwsbericht OWS, 8 september 2014).
