FAQ

What is biodegradable material?
According to International testing standards ASTM D6400, the material will be decomposition to CO2 and H2O when compost under the environment of temperature over 60℃ with proper humidity, oxygen and microorganism.

How to deal with the disposed biodegradable product?
Could follow the government policy to compost, incineration or recycle.

Would it has harmful gas emission when biodegradable product incineration?
No. The material of biodegradable product is all extract from plant. It won't emit any harmful chemical gas or smoke. The smell just like burning paper and only 30% carbon footprint.

Why should use biodegradable product?
The original plastic product is hard to decomposition.If it's not recycled well, it will existence in ocean, earth for years and damage our ecosystem. So to protect our Earth, the biodegradable product is the best choice.

What's the pros and cons of biodegradable product?
PLA material is extract from natural plant. It could be an endlessly cycle of made from natural and decomposed back to natural without any harmful pollution from this process. It's a true environment friendly material.

How to exam is a real biodegradable material?
The real biodegradable material will have the compostable international license from International standards ASTM D6400\EN 13432\DIN. Including America, Germany, EU, Belgium, etc., international certification agency.

Why biodegradable product is a kind of environmentally friendly product?
The biodegradable material is extract from plant in nature. The product could decompose to CO2 and H2O, also could farming on the compost without any pollution.

Is there any chemical ingredients (such as: plasticizers, trihydrogen ammonia ...)?
All the product are made from PLA or biodegradable material. Without any chemical ingredient, it's completed harmless and environment friendly product.

Does biodegradable product belong to plastic type when recycling?
In the definitions of international recycling charter, the biodegradable product belongs to No. 7 material (Others), it must be separated from other plastic products for different recycle procedure. The biodegradable product will mark with No 7 and PLA wording.

What will be the extent decomposition of biodegradable product?
According to the international standard DIN EN 13432, the biodegradable plastic for compost should follow three criterias and decompose to natural elements over 90% within 180 days : 1. Biodegradation: Under temperature about 60℃ with oxygen environment, should decomposed over 90% within 180 days. 2. Disintegration: After laboratory scale decomposition over 180 days, the packaging waste residue which large than 2 mm should not over 10%. 3. Safety: As the low heavy metal content estimation for ecotoxicology (the OECD guideline 208, experiment with two different types of plant), the growth ability of bacterial, microorganism and plant should not be effected. To ensure the biodegradable plastic for compost could really achieve the benefit of decomposition. EU, USA, Japan, Australia, etc., all come out with a rigorous certification protocol. In Taiwan, the EPA (Environmental Protection Administration) also has an environmental label certification for biodegradable plastic.

Would the biodegradable material be decomposed in air?
It won't be. The criteria of decomposition are composted under the environment of temperature over 60℃, 58% humidity, with oxygen and microorganism, over 6 months.

Is biodegradable product has acid and alkali resistant?
Yes, the biodegradable product is acid and alkali resistant material.
