Brief project description:
The project investigates the behaviour of consumer items, such as “biodegradable” dog poo and zip lock bags under a range of environmentally-relevant conditions. The candidate(s) will conduct a series of experiments in collaboration with the Hobart City Council waste management facility that will test the biodegradability of products in a commercial composting system.
Candidates will investigate the degradability of these same items under environmental conditions, such as seawater and freshwater, using raceway tanks at the IMAS Launceston or Taroona facilities.
