French documentary Le Monde de Jamy 1

Members of the MINAGRIS team recently took part in filming for an upcoming documentary about plastic contamination, which will be shown on ‘Le Monde de Jamy’ in France.

We covered several topics in our interviews, with three of our researchers from Wageningen University and Research taking part. Firstly, Dr Nicolas Beriot explained how plastic contamination is monitored in agricultural fields; next, Ms Rozita Soltani Tehrani spoke about how plastics are transported across soil profiles; and finally, Dr Maarten van der Zee showed how biodegradation is assessed and clarified alongside comparing the differences between bio-based and bio-degradable plastics.

The documentary will air towards the end of 2024/in early 2025. Stay tuned!
