Abstract: from the introduction, ". . .The degradation processes for starch-based plastics following burial in modern sanitary landfills is not well known. The objective of this study is to measure the rate and extent of deterioration of starch-based and control plastics in a municipal solid waste landfill. The composition of the MSW buried at the landfill was determined and environmental conditions at the burial site were measured to determine if favorable conditions existed for degradation to proceed. Both physical and chemical tests were conducted to measure the extent of deterioration of starch-based and control plastics during the 24 months burial in a municipal solid waste landfill. . ."
