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 are shelf-stable less persistent in simulated ideal conditions. However, these products will not pass ASTM D6400 Industrial Compost standards and cannot be certified as being compostable. 

We find these results very encouraging and have created the iQ label program to enable responsible, honest, qualified B2C communication. 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.
