1. WHAT ARE BIODEGRADABLE MATERIALS
Polylactic acid(PLA) is a biodergradable polymer material prepared from biomass material by high technology. PLA has excellent biodegradability.After being discarded,it can be completely degraded by microorganisms in the soil to generate CO2 and H2O without environmental pollution.
2 WHAT ARE THE CHARACTERISTICS OF BIODEGRADABLE MATERIALS
Biomolecular materials dericed from renwable natural plant resources such as beet and potato
All biodergradable products are suittable for various waste disposal methods;natural decomposittion,composting and incineration
The biological full degradation into water and carbon dioxide,zero pollution to the natural ecology
3. What is the difference between "oxo-biodegradable" and "compostable"?
Oxo-biodegradable refers to a material that is made from plastic that, over time, will break down into smaller pieces of plastic
but never fully degrade. Compostable materials, on the other hand, are made from plant-based materials and will completely
biodegrade in a short period of time in a commercial composting operation. Oxo-biodegradable bags, often labeled "degradable" or
"biodegradable" are not permitted under this new law. Only compostable bags are allowed.
4. Will the compostable bags start to breakdown if it rains or if they are stored for a long period of time?
The technology used to make compostable bags has improved greatly. The first compostable bags made years ago did tend to break
down when stored too long on a shelf or if they came in contact with any moisture. Today, we have much higher-quality bags that
have longer shelf lives and can hold up better to outdoor conditions. You will likely notice a difference in brands, so if you
don't like one type that you use, try another and it may work better.
5. Why is using compostable bags important?
Once your yard waste or source separated compostable waste is picked up, it is delivered to a compost facility. Waste received at
composting facilities in regular plastic bags must be debagged, which increases costs and the chance that plastic bags will be
blowing around on site causing a safety hazard and litter problem. Some compost sites shred the bag and its contents and attempt
to screen the torn pieces of plastics later. Unfortunately not all plastic shreds can be screened out, which reduces the value and
quality of the finished compost.
6. Where can I buy compostable bags?
send inquiry to us, or contact us via trademanager and alibaba, we are free in all day!
7. When do I have to use compostable bags?
Compostable bags are required for use with curbside yard waste and compost collection (unless you use a cart from your hauler). So
any yard waste, food waste, organics, or other compostable material must be placed in a compostable or kraft bag, or in a cart
when collected at the curb.
8. What are the benefits of using compost?
Benefits of using compost include:
• Saving natural resources;
• Reducing soil erosion;
• Preventing polluted storm water runoff from contaminating our wetlands, lakes, and streams; and
• Providing a valuable soil amendment product that can be used to enrich the soils of our community.
