OWS & IKT: Multi-client study on Oxos

Comprehensive laboratory test programme planned

Dear Members,

Bildschirmfoto 2014-08-18 um 13.06.40As presented during the last Members Meeting, OWS and IKT are planning a multi-client study on oxo-fragmentable plastics. Building on a desk research by OWS for Plastics Europe, a comprehensive laboratory testing programme is planned.

The laboratory tests shall ultimately proof or disproof if oxo-fragmentable plastic are biodegradable or not.

In a first phase a number of oxo-fragmentable plastic products available in the market will be abiotically treated. In a second phase, the fragmented parts will be used for further biodegradation testing.

The contribution for this study is estimated at 10,000 Euro to 20,000 Euro per partner, depending on the number of interested companies.

More information can be found in the official proposal:
