A case study was performed, concerning the behavior and degradation of a polymeric biocomposite material – “liquid wood”. This material is biodegradable and it is obtained from renewable resources. Three presentation forms – Arbofill Fichte, Arboform F45 and Arboblend V2, were subjected to the action of external factors present in a marine environment. The results pertaining to the change in the physico – chemical properties of “liquid wood” when subjected to the action of seawater and seawater microorganisms, with significant – but nevertheless positive – consequences upon the environment. The material exhibits good performance after the surface and mass stabilization – due to water, C, Na, Cl and O absorption. As such – due to the emergence of a protective organic biofilm – growth of microorganisms significantly decreases and electric conductivity increases. This case study may be viewed as a starting point for subsequent studies of “liquid wood”.
