Comparative Study on the Effects of Different Molecular Weight Polyethylene Powders in Soil
In order to resolve the soil polluted problem which were brought by polyethylene, the study focus on the effects of different molecular weight polyethylene powders to soil, and discuss the molecular weight change of polyethylene. This study made use of four kinds of molecular weight polyethylene powders as materials, added them into the soil of potted soybean to test efficient N content, efficient P content, efficient K content in every development period of soybean, and test the molecular weight of four kinds of polyethylene after the whole development periods of soybean. The Important findings in this study were that there are no significant differences among the efficient N content, efficient P content, efficient K of control group and every experimental group, the molecular weight of polyethylene are nearly no change. it means that the different molecular weight polyethylene powders have no effect to soil.
