Abstract:

An impact of the decomposition products of Poly(butylene succinate adipate) (PBSA) (Bionolle#3001) in the form of polymer chips and nonwovens made of the polymer upon the qualitative and quantitative microbiological profile of the soil in which samples of the materials were incubated was investigated. The mass loss of the polymer and nonwovens as a result of their biodegradation proceeding in the soil was compared. Two kinds of the soil were applied in the biodegradation tests: garden soil and an agriculture soil taken from the experimental field plots of the Agriculture University (AU) of Cracow. The AU soil despite low moisture content is fertile and holds a great amount of microorganisms. The garden soil does not offer favourable conditions for the biodegradation process, confirmed by a low mass loss in the incubated Bionolle#3001 samples.
