Plastisphere Ep.7: Confused about bioplastics? – Plastisphere: A podcast on plastic pollution in the environment
Released July 14, 2019
What happens if bioplastics end up in the environment? In this episode, Anja takes a closer look at synthetic polymers marketed as more environmentally friendly. Can they contribute to a healthier planet, and in what way? Anja talks to Frederik Wurm, a chemist developing biodegradable plastics, Constance Ißbrücker of the industry association European Bioplastics, Zero Waste expert Enzo Favoino, marine microbiologist Linda Amaral-Zettler and ecotoxicologist Lisa Zimmermann. Though biodegradable plastics might not fulfill our hopes, it turns out that they might make sense in some niche applications.
The Plastisphere is a research and interview podcast by German freelance journalist Anja Krieger.
