material are any organic material that can be broken down by microorganisms into simpler, more stable compounds Most organic waste such as foods, paper, etc are biodegradable
Capable of being broken down by micro-organisms which utilise the substance as a source of energy and bring about its destruction Usually referred to biological processes in soil, water, sewage but also to man-made organic compounds such as pesticides
Capable of being decomposed by living organisms
A product that has the ability to break down, safely and relatively quickly, by biological means, into the raw materials of nature These products can be solids which break down into soil (composting)), or liquids which break down into water For example, biodegradable plastic is intended to break up when exposed to microorganisms (a natural ingredient such as cornstarch or vegetable oil is added to achieve this result) -
The ability of a substance to be broken down physically and/or chemically by natural biological processes, such as by being digested by bacteria or fungi
bacteria; "a biodegradable detergent
the term given to a substance that can be broken down, i e biodegrades, by the natural processes of decomposition Top
Able to be broken into simpler chemical compounds by microorganisms Organic materials are biodegradable
when a substance is able to be broken down by microorganisms into basic elements like carbon dioxide and water (See "decompose ")
Something that is biodegradable breaks down or decays naturally without any special scientific treatment, and can therefore be thrown away without causing pollution. a natural and totally biodegradable plastic. materials, chemicals etc that are biodegradable are changed naturally by bacteria into substances that do not harm the environment   non biodegradable
Capable of decomposing rapidly under natural conditions
A material that can be broken down to simpler components by a biological process
Organic materials such as food scraps, paper and grass clippings that are capable of being broken down by microorganisms into simple compounds such as carbon dioxide, water or minerals
Capable of being readily decomposed by the action of microbes
capable of being decomposed by e g bacteria; "a biodegradable detergent"
biodegradable pollution
pollution that is rendered harmless by natural processes and so causes no permanent harm
biodegradability
The capacity of a material to decompose over time as a result of biological activity, especially to be broken down by microorganisms
biodegrade
To decompose as a result of biological action, especially by microorganisms
biodegradability
measured by mixing the product with seawater in a closed container and monitoring oxygen depletion over time As the product is degraded by seawater organisms, carbon is converted to CO2, and oxygen concentration declines "Ready biodegradability," our goal, applies to products that degrade by 60% within 28 days
biodegradability
the potential of an organic substance to be broken down into simpler compounds or molecules through the action of microorganisms
biodegradability
Capacity of a material to decompose by biological action. The term usually refers to the environmental breakdown of waste by microorganisms. Generally, plant and animal products are biodegradable, whereas mineral substances (e.g., metals, glass, plastics) are not. Local conditions, especially the presence or absence of oxygen, affect biodegradability. Disposal of nonbiodegradable waste is a primary source of pollution. Surgical materials made to be absorbed by the body are also called biodegradable
biodegradability
the susceptibility of a substance to decomposition by microorganisms; specifically, the rate at which compounds may be chemically broken down by bacteria and/or natural environmental factors
biodegradation
The breakdown of organic materials into simple chemicals commonly found in the body
biodegradation
Breakdown of organic matter by micro-organisms into carbon dioxide and water or into less harmful compounds
biodegradation
the microbially mediated process of chemical breakdown of a substance to smaller products caused by micro-organisms or their enzymes [CUB]
biodegradation
1) The reduction in concentration of a chemical or physical agent through naturally occurring microbial activity 2) The process of an organic molecule becoming transformed by biological means
biodegradation
Decomposition of materials by microorganisms
biodegradation
The natural process that breaks contaminants down in the environment into non- or less-harmful by-products
biodegradation
The breakdown of organic compounds by microorganisms
biodegradation
Breakdown of material in living tissue
biodegradation
Decomposition of organic matter by the action of micro organisms
biodegradation
Decomposition of a substance into more elementary compounds by the action of microorganisms such as bacteria
biodegradation
Using aerobic bacteria to decompose organic wastes
biodegradation
the natural process of contaminant breakdown by microorganisms in the environment, often forming non-harmful or less harmful byproducts
biodegradation
The breakdown of organic materials into simpler components by microorganisms
biodegradation
The chemical breakdown of materials by living organisms in the environment The process depends on certain microorganisms, such as bacteria, yeast, and fungi, which break down molecules for sustenance Certain chemical structures are more susceptible to microbial breakdown than others; vegetable oils, for example, will biodegrade more rapidly than petroleum oils Most petroleum products typically will completely biodegrade in the environment within two months to two years
biodegradation
Transformation of a substance into new compounds through biochemical reactions or the actions of microorganisms such as bacteria
biodegradation
The use of microorganisms to degrade, or break down, compounds found in the environment
biodegradation
The breakdown of organic substances by microorganisms
biodegradation
The decomposition of any material by microorganisms
biodegradation
The natural breakdown of a substance by microscopic organisms
biodegradation
Decomposition of substances into more elementary compounds by the action of micro-organisms
biodegradation
Decomposition of material by microorganisms
biodegrade
the natural process by which organic substances break down or decompose into harmless basic materials: water, carbon dioxide, nitrogen, etc
biodegrade
to decompose a substance by living organisms
biodegrade
To decompose by natural means
biodegrade
to decay and become absorbed by the environment
