The rate depends on multiple conditions that trigger the biodegradation process including moisture levels, oxygen, heat and microorganisms. The process of biodegradation also depends on the product application. Our films comply with standards for home and industrial composting, including EN 13432 and ASTM D6400, TUV OK Compost Home which stipulate that home compostable films disintegrate within 6 months and industrially compostable films disintegrate within 3 months.
Please note that biodegradability does not mean that you can litter or throw our products in the nature! Littering should not be encouraged under any circumstances.
