How do landfill-biodegradable plastics work? – BiogonePosted on June 7, 2023 by DrRossH in Plastic Waste News
We’ve all heard of what we need to do when it comes to our plastic waste, we need to reduce, reuse and recycle. The most obvious and lowest cost step in this process is to reduce the use of plastic, however currently reducing our plastic waste on a significant scale is not a viable option, and setting up efficient soft plastic recycling is taking far too long for it to be economic.
The other option we have in in the interim is adopting biodegradable plastics. The industry and consumers however still have little understanding about the benefits of this emergent technology for it to be formally recognised as a viable alternative.
