*Biodegradation rates of our materials are measured according to the ASTM D5511 test method.
Actual biodegradation rates will vary according to the solid content, moisture, and temperature levels in the landfill.
Ingredients in our technology allow the formation of a coating called biofilm to form on the material.
The biofilm is made up of micro-organisms which penetrate the material.
Other ingredients in our technology cause the molecular structure of the material to expand, allowing the microbes in.
The microbes eat the material on a molecular level, accelerating biodegradation.
*Please note that regulation in California prohibits the sale of plastic products that are labeled with the terms “biodegradable”. The law also prohibits language that implies in any way that the item will break down, biodegrade or decompose in a landfill or other environment. These restrictions apply to all sales in the State of California including online.
