Comparing Biodegradation in Dry-tomb and Bioreactor Landfills by Measuring CO2 [E]
Biodegradation of a Sugarcane-based Disposable Plate and a Tree-based Disposable Plate in a Landfill [E]
Which type of paper decomposes the fastest? [P]
Determine whether it is possible to harness wasted gravitational potential energy and convert it into easily accessed kinetic energy. Application of this principle is a garbage can that can bring itself out to the curb when full and back to the house when empty. [E]
Will biodegradable plastic spoons decompose in common environments? [E] [E] [E]
Study auto body plastic filler (ABPF) and see if it degrades, and how it may affect the environment, landfills, water system, soil and the degradation of other materials. [P]
