受賞者氏名: HAM Geun-Yong(資源循環領域)
賞の名称: Excellent Poster Award
授賞機関: Japan Society of Material Cycles and Waste Management Kanto branch
受賞対象: Lab-scale biodegradability test of bioplastics under soil condition based on standard methods,令和3年度関東⽀部研究発表会, - ,2022
Since its development, plastic has been an inextricable part of our daily lives. However, they are likely to end up in nature rather than reusable options. They have been causing many environmental issues such as waterway blocking, micro-and nano- plastic, and intervention in the ecosystem. Bioplastics have gained much attention as one of the alternatives to solve plastic pollution and are used in many applications - shopping bags, cutlery, packaging, agriculture or horticulture, etc. Since biodegradation is challenging to confirm visually, several standard methods are normalized on a laboratory scale. Among the various environments, this study presented the result of the biodegradability, physicochemical changes of the bioplastics, and the estimated biodegradation rate of bioplastics under soil conditions. It is my pleasure to receive this award, and I am also happy to introduce my research here. The conference was held online, so I could not have a more active discussion with other researchers. I hope the pandemic would be ended soon and people can be gathered and have an active discussion on the research.
