The participating institutions are Korea Conformity Laboratories (KCL), Incheon National University, Korea Petrochemical Industry Association (KPBMA) and Korea Plastic Industry Cooperative Federation.

 

Incheon is planning to establish test evaluation infrastructure to perform biodegradability assessment in various environments (soil, ocean, water system, and anaerobic environment), ecotoxicity assessment of decomposition products, and biomass content assessment for confirming plastic greenhouse gas reduction effect. They are also going to build a bio-waste facility to demonstrate a virtuous cycle ecosystem of biodegradable plastic production-disposal-recycling, and establish a pilot program to support development of petroleum-based biodegradable raw materials.
 

In addition, they are going to support exporting businesses through making business agreement with a global certification institution, TUV Rheinland (DIN CERTCO Certification). This is to ensure that the test reports issued at the center on the biodegradability and biomass area can be recognized overseas.
