1.) What is Biodegradable?

Anything that decomposes or breaks down naturally by the action of micro-organisms and thus resulting in the formation of CO2, CH4, water and humus in the soil.


2.) What is Compostable?

Anything that undergoes degradation by biological process during composting to yield CO2, water, inorganic compounds and biomass at rate consistent with other known compostable material and leave no visible, distinguishable or toxic residue but act as increasing the fertility of the soil with added minerals.


3.) What is Oxo-degradable?

Oxo Biodegradable (OXO) is polyolefin plastic to which has been added amounts of metal salts. These catalyze the natural degradation process to speed it up so that the OXO plastic will degrade resulting in microfragments of plastic and metals which will remain in the environment but will not be seen as a visual contaminant. The degradation process is shortened from hundreds of years to years and/or months for degradation and thereafter biodegradation depends on the micro-organisms in the environment.
