Bioplastics- opportunities and limitations

  • Prof. Dr. Christoph Hess

    Professor for non-metallic materials with the Faculty for Technology and Bionics at the Rhine-Waal Univerity of Applied Sciences, Germany


After a brief definition of terms (what are bioplastics?), this lecture will discuss various material and application examples for biobased and/or biodegradable plastics. An overview on the topic of organic recycling (compostability, biodegradability) will be given. Finally we discuss the microplastics issue and the degradation of plastics in the ocean.
