Biodegradable plastics - are they a solution to plastics pollution?

Every year, more and more plastics end up in our oceans and rivers and on the land. Once there, they pose risks to our environment and the health of living creatures. Conventional plastics persist for centuries, but biodegradable plastics are designed by scientists to break down in a few weeks or years. Could biodegradable plastics help us solve the pollution problem, or are they are a problem in themselves?

Watch this international webinar recorded on 4 February 2021, where a distinguished panel of experts explore the potential role that biodegradable plastics could play in our society, and what practical steps are needed next to shape European policy on the issue.

Speakers:

  • Professor Nicole Grobert - European Commission’s Group of Chief Scientific Advisors
  • Silvia Forni - European Commission Directorate-General for Environment
  • Professor Richard Thompson - Marine Institute at Plymouth University 
  • Dr Miriam Weber - HYDRA Marine Sciences

Chair: Professor Ole Petersen - Academia Europaea

Moderator: Esther Kentin, Leiden University
