Abstract

The progressing degradation of the natural environment taking place over the last few decades and resulting from the systematically growing amount of generated waste, including polymer materials, led to the search for technological innovations aimed at producing environmentally friendly materials. Inability to degrade synthetic polymers and the problem of their persistence in the environment even for hundreds of years caused the production of polymer materials with the addition of components that may accelerate their degradation more and more important. Composting is one of the methods that can be widely used in decomposing polymer materials with the addition of a biocomponent. Composts produced from biodegradable wastes with the addition of polymer materials, due to their high content of organic matter and nutrients, can be widely used in the reclamation of degraded and devastated land.
