  • Plastics with controlled release of substances (natural pest repellents, fertilizers, anti-root, etc.).
  • UV resistance, chemical resistance, permeability, wavelength control, etc.

Solutions to the problems of breakage and degradation of plastic products

  • Advice on the causes of failure, breakage, degradation, installation issues, etc.
  • Control and characterization of plastics in agriculture: mechanical and thermal properties, ageing, analysis of UV additives
  • Enhanced properties by combining polymers, additivation and/or polymer modification by reactive extrusion.

Development of more sustainable plastics

  • Use of recycled plastic, recyclability studies, control and characterization of agricultural products using recycled plastic.
  • Development of biodegradable and compostable agricultural products, including soil compostability.
  • Biodegradability and compostability studies and advice on the certification of compostable products (DIN Certco).
  • Environmental impact assessment (Carbon footprint, LCA).

Management of agricultural and plastic waste

  • Using agricultural waste to obtain biopolymers and additives.
  • Using agricultural and forestry waste as fibres and fillers in plastic products.
