In this work, the biodegradation of polylactide films, granules and tapes at temperatures of 23 °C and 8 °C in humus and chernozem soils was investigated. It was found that under the conditions studied, polylactide products are poorly biodegradable – for 84 days of exposure in the soil, the weight loss of all products did not exceed 10%. According to the results of microbiological assessment of the microflora of soils in which destruction occurred, no destructors of this type of biodegradable polymer were identified by inoculation in nutrient media containing polymer as the only carbon source.
