Biodegradation of Bioplastic Plant Containers in Home Compost (2 weeks)

This video shows our results during the first two weeks of biodegradation with over twenty types of bioplastic composites in a home composting system. This is the first in a short series of videos that will illustrate the biodegradability of these biorenewable polymers and composites in home compost.

Additional videos in this series can be found on the Bioplastic Container Cropping Systems Research YouTube Channel
