Commercially available starch-based biodegradable films were tested for the assessment of biodegradability in accordance with standardised and non-standardised methods providing possibilities to directly monitor microbial activity. A method originating from the measurement process of the biological activity of soils was modified and applied according to the recommendation of international standards to test polymers under controlled composting conditions. Based on the results of our experiments, it is not possible to clearly assess the biodegradability of films based exclusively on the measurements of the produced CO2
