2020年9月7日,欧洲环境署(EEA)发表A.简报的机遇和挑战进行了讨论biodegradable and compostable plastics. The article introduces the definitions and implications of using plastics that are bio-based, biodegradable, oxo-degradable, and compostable. It also provides an overview of the current certifications and reference standards for compostability and biodegradability depending on various environmental conditions. Referenced studies in the briefing have shown that the multitude of labels that exist are difficult for consumers to understand, who are often surprised to learn that a bio-based plastic is not necessarily compostable or biodegradable. Different requirements for industrial versus home composting were also found to be confusing. While these plastics are seen to have potential environmental benefits in specific applications, theEEA.确定“可生物降解,可堆肥和基于生物的塑料需要更清晰的标签,并反复提高认识活动,以确保用户确保其正确的处置和治疗。”

在一个新闻稿回应EEA.简报,产业协会欧洲生物塑料呼吁“需要承认成功的先例,以与消费者的接受社区合作在部署这些创新材料中。”它认为,遗憾的是,几个媒体网点利用了对报告的偏见解释,吸引了可生物降解和堆肥塑料的扭曲图片和“所有相关利益攸关方的呼吁在可生物降解和可粘性塑料中具有建设性的对话,这是科学的比基于意识形态。“
