Compostability / Biodegradability:
PLA is the common name for Polylactic Acid or Polyactide. it is 100% compostable and fully renewable. It can be converted back to monomer and polymer or it can biodegrade into water, carbon dioxide and organic materials. PLA is much more sustainable than petroleum plastic. PLA is made from starch rich plants such as corn, wheat and sugar beets. These plants are first milled to separate the starch, from which is unrefined dextrose is processed. The unrefined dextrose goes through a fermentation process and the result is lactic acid.
The tested PBAT polymer is a fossil-based, biodegradable polymer, which is used amongst others for the production of biodegradable, certified compostable bio-waste bags (according to EN 13432) or biodegradable in soil certified mulch films (according to EN 17033).
Our bags are a combination of PLA and PBAT bio-plastic.
