In recent years, the growing demand and use of polymeric materials resulted in a great waste disposal problem at a global level. Furthermore, polymeric materials can cause serious damage to the environment due to the fact that they are not biodegradable and persist in the environment for hundreds of years. In order to minimize the environmental impact, researchers developed various formulations of polymeric materials that can be obtained from natural resources and present properties such as biodegradability and biocompatibility, as substitutes to the traditional polymers. In addition to biodegradation tests, in order to determine their effect on the environment, ecotoxicity tests have been used. The aim of this study is to present various methods for polymeric materials ecotoxicity determination.
