Agreement: Turning Feathers into Organic Bioplastic Mulch for Agricultural Industry (ISC-02-PH1 ) (Jul. 15, 2019 – sept 1, 2023)

The objective of this project is to test the formulation and properties (such as strength and decomposition rate) of a biodegradable and compostable bioplastic mulch, in order to adapt for agricultural applications.

Expected Results:

Improved biodegradability of bio-based plastics derived from agricultural or wood-based biomass suitable for use as replacements for single use plastics (e.g. packaging).
