Biodegradable Plastic

Bioplast manufacture biodegradable plastic bags using a new technology, which is both environmentally friendly and non-toxic.

With the increasing usage of non degradable plastics polluting our environment, researchers at Bioplast have developed a totally biodegradable polyethylene.

Enhancing polyethylene products to undergo a change in the chemical structure under environmental conditions.

The LDP/HDP polymer decays due to the action of enzymes, bacteria, starch & clay when exposed to sunlight and buried in soil such as landfills. The degraded product is compostable, enhancing the nutritive value of the remaining soil.

Degradation takes place between 30-90 days once buried.  However the product has a packed shelf-life of up to 18 months.
