Darwin Initiative Round 24

Department for Environment, Food, and Rural Affairs

The Darwin Initiative is a UK government grants scheme that helps to protect biodiversity and the natural environment through locally based projects worldwide. The initiative funds projects that help countries rich in biodiversity but poor in financial resources to meet their objectives under one or more of the biodiversity conventions. The objective is to to address threats to biodiversity such as: - habitat loss or degradation - climate change - invasive species - over-exploitation - pollution and eutrophication

UK-China Agritech Challenge Zero-Waste Agricultural Mulch Films for Crops in China (ZEWAMFI)

UK - Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy

This project aims at new degradable mulch films for the production of arable food crops in China. It stems from the fact that a) agricultural plastics can increase crop yields and improve water management in semi-arid areas of the country, where they are used in the production of arable staple food crops (wheat, maize, potatoes) b) Petroleum derived polymers, currently used in the manufacture of such mulch films (which are difficult to recycle due to contamination with pesticides and soil) degrade due to UV light, resulting in microplastics. c) Their build-up is reported to reach a level that will make soil unfertile, and d) current compostable plastics, currently developed in Europe and the US, are too expensive and are used mostly in the production of high-value horticultural crops. This collaborative project will produce credible scientific data to evaluate the dual behavior of high performance agricultural polymeric materials, which will be stable during use, coupled with an end-of-life of in-soil biodegradation that will back-up the claims made on the products. This will support preemptive action against agricultural film generated micro-plastics, by creating a standard that subscribes to a relevant risk assessment could help to avert a potential agricultural soil crisis similar to the one facing the marine environment.
