Evaluation of the quality of the Final project
 
Learning outcomes of the course unit:
The aim is to receive basic knowledge on specific polymers in the field of biodegradable polymers and polymers from renewable resources and to show their imoportance in ecological, medical and material applications. The subject goes out from the processes of the recovery these polymers (biotechnologically, extraction from natural materials) through their modifications according to use. The content of the subject interlocks the subjects Macromolecular Chemictry and Natutral Polymers.
 
Course contents:
Biodegradable polymers and polymjers from renewable resources and showing their importance in ecological, medical and material applications. It goes out from the processes of the recovery these polymers (biotechnologically, extraction from natural materials) through their modifications according to use. Biodegradable polymers in new technologies, biomaterials. The ecological importance of biodegradable polymers and polymers from renewable resources, carbon footprint. LCA of biodegradable polymers and legislative, methods of biodegradability and ecotoxicity testing. Applications of biodegradable polymers in agriculture and packaging, certification of products and progresive technologies. Biopolymers and nonotechnologies, active packaging.
