Selection of eco-friendly alternatives regarding the chemical composition of polymers to diminish the environmental impact of these materials and minimize their potential harmful effects for the environment and health.
The chemical behaviour is evaluated, including the detection of ecotoxicological leachate of directed analytes of polymeric materials made ad hoc. The project combines ecotoxicology, environmental chemistry and materials science combining the three subjects in each one of the experimental tasks, with the double aim of selecting additives with plasticising and flame-retardant properties, UV filters and antimicrobial agents useful for the industry with a low impact on the aquatic environment according to ecotoxicological tests with sensitive marine organisms and therefore undergoing an ex ante evaluation of the environmental risk of alternative bioplastics with lower persistence and toxicity.
