From plastic to CO2

Compostable plastic is biodegradable in special composting plants, where natural microorganisms are used to break down the strong chemical compounds into small, naturally occurring molecules like water, CO2 and methane. The process is the same, regardless of whether the plastic’s origin is bio-based, as with biobased plastic, or fossil fuel-based.

To be categorised as compostable, the plastic must adhere to the EU standard EN13432, which stipulates that 90% of the plastic must be broken down into organic material within six months.
