The difference between compostable and biodegradable

The difference between compostable and biodegradable

 
The emergence of eco-friendly product packaging was driven by the need to create a new packaging solution that does not generate waste and toxicity like known synthetic materials such as traditional plastics.2.5oz paper cups Compostable and biodegradable are terms commonly used in the topic of sustainability in packaging materials, but what is the difference between the two? custom french fry cups What is the difference when describing packaging properties as "compostable" or "biodegradable"?
1. What is compostable?
If a material is compostable, this means that under composting conditions (temperature, humidity, oxygen and the presence of microorganisms) it will break down into carbon dioxide, water and nutrient-rich compost in a given period of
 
 
2. What is biodegradable?
The term biodegradable represents a process, but there is no certainty about the conditions or time frame for product breakdown and degradation. The problem with the term biodegradable is that it is a vague term with no clear time or
 
conditions. As a result, many things that are not biodegradable in practice can be labeled as biodegradable.2.5oz paper cup Technically, all naturally occurring organic compounds can be biodegraded under the right conditions and will break down over a period of time, but it may take hundreds or thousands of years.custom yogurt cups
 
3. Why is compostable better than biodegradable?
If your bag is labeled compostable, you can be sure it will decompose under composting conditions in a maximum of 180 days.custom frozen yogurt cups This is similar to the way food and garden waste is broken down by microbes, leaving a non-toxic residue.
4. Why is compostability important?
Plastic packaging waste is often so contaminated with food waste that it cannot be recycled and ends up in incinerators or landfills.3oz ice cream cups with lids That's why compostable packaging was introduced. Not only does it prevent landfills and incineration,
 
but the resulting compost can return organic matter to the soil. If packaging waste can be incorporated into the organic waste system and used as compost for the next generation of plants, then this waste can be recycled and can be used
 
in the marketplace, not only as waste, but also for economic value.
