Biodegradation Test Results

We consider biodegradation testing to be very important and continue to test multiple variations of our NuPlastiQ materials and BioBlends®.  A structure is considered to be fully biodegraded during a test when it has reached or exceeded 90% biodegradation compared to cellulose according to that test. The reports here will be added to and updated as new data is available.  

We have test results (below) showing evidence that blending NuPlastiQ with traditional non-biodegradable polyolefins will result in plastic products that biodegrade in simulated compost, landfill, soil, and marine conditions according to a variet of ASTM Test Methods. However, these products will not pass ASTM D6400 Industrial Compost standards and cannot be certified as being compostable

We find these results very encouraging but do not make any claims about biodegradation in the unfortunate case that these products are leaked into the natural environment.  We are working diligently, and invite others to join with us, in gathering more data and design plastic products that can be tested using new test methods in order to establish certification standards for plastics that biodegrade if leaked to the natural environment.
