Commander, R. F. and Pratt, E. Scymaris Ltd., Brixham Laboratory, Freshwater Quarry, Brixham Devon TQ5 8BA UK

In recent years wet wipes have become a convenient method of cleaning and disinfecting for a variety of applications (baby wipes, make-up removal, household and commercial cleaning), this project looked at whether there was any difference between the biodegradation of woven and nonwoven wipes and whether any difference in biodegradation was observed in aerated and sealed bottle ready biodegradation test systems.
