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.

To help you understand the challenges of biodegradable polymers, we joined forces with Prof. Dr. Michael Sander from ETH Zurich and Mrs. Maren Sander, Product Manager Extraction at BUCHI, for a free webinar.
