Biodegradable film can be produced from fossil-based oil, corn or sugar and should meet all the recognised norms for biodegradability and composting of plastic products.
Biodegradable plastics can be used in many ways, offering solutions for many single or short-term use applications. Importantly, Biobased films are also suitable for food packaging.
Experts still regard some biodegradable plastics as challenging because the decomposition process is difficult to control and the material does not decompose fast enough to be used as organic waste.
Unfortunately, biodegradable plastic cannot be recycled with normal plastic waste as they might spoil the recycling process. Many households are today supplied with separate biodegradable waste recovery collection points.
