Biodegradation & Composting OXO PLA Universities, Institutes & Labs

University of Costa Rica Published Study on the Hidden Reality of Bioplastics

Most bioplastics behave just like conventional plastics and can remain in nature for hundreds of years, although they are marketed as an eco-friendly alternative. The objective of the experiment was to evaluate the degree of biodegradability of materials identified as polylactic acid (PLA) and oxobiodegradable (OXO), which are presented as biodegradable. Likewise, other plastics such as polyethylene (derived from petroleum) and cellulose (existing in nature) were considered.
