Compostability & Biodegradability

Products made with BioLogiQ’s NuPlastiQ® are durable and shelf stable. They will not degrade (fragment) or cause degradation simply because of the presence of oxygen or UV light.

BioBlend BC Resins:


Blending NuPlastiQ with other biodegradable resins such as PBS, PHA, PBAT or PLA will result in BioBlend BC products that biodegrade in Industrial Compost conditions. In its pure form, NuPlastiQ will biodegrade as fast or faster than cellulose or any other kind of bioplastic on the market today.

NuPlastiQ and several BioBlend BC grades have have passed standardized tests for compostability and are certified by TUV to meet the criteria specified in ASTM D6400 and EN 13432.

* All tests we performed by independent third-party laboratories.  Copies of the reports are available for review.  These results may not be applied to all products made using NuPlastiQ.

 

BioBlend MB Resins:

NuPlastiQ GP is certified as ‘OK Biodegradable Marine’ by TUV.  We have also designed some thin films that biodegrade within one year in ocean water when tested according to ASTM-D6691.

BioBlend CB Resins:

We can design custom blends to meet unique requirements for combinations of recyclability and biodegradability in a variety of environments such as ocean, soil, landfill and home compost.

 

BioBlend XP/XD Resins

BioBlend XP and XD resins reduce carbon footprint versus fossil-based plastics. BioBlend XP and XD resins are designed to be durable and can be recycled with special considerations. Biodegradability information on BioBlend XP and XD resins is provided for B2B discussions and decision making. BioLogiQ doesn’t support B2C communication on polyolefin biodegradation.

  • BioLogiQ has conclusive evidence that NuPlastiQ accelerated polyolefin biodegradation under lab conditions (ASTM D5338 and D5511).
  • The mechanism is not fragmentation. Polyolefin BioBlends are shelf stable under normal storage conditions.
  • Investment of approximately one million dollars has been allocated to projects learning if and how NuPlastiQ-induced biodegradation would reduce environmental impacts of polyolefins that leak into the environment. Results expected in two years.
