What’s the point of disposables being compostable?
The short answer – compostable is preferable to biodegradable. Compostable disposables are designed to be recycled in an industrial composting facility together with food waste. That means there’s no need for sorting, and the compostable cup, lid, burger box, knife and napkin can all go together without removing the ketchup and leftover chips. An extra bonus is that once food and disposables share one bin, other dry recycling bins are cleaner and easier to recycle.
What is PLA? This product is made from or contains PolyLactic Acid (PLA). PLA is a plant-based compostable bioplastic. PLA is an environmentally friendly alternative to petrochemical originated plastic polymers and can be used to make a wide range of eco-disposable products including cold cups, deli containers, lids, straws, portion pots etc. It is also used in clear windows, greaseproof paper and cup linings.
The Benefits of PLA Made from renewable plant materials. Light, strong, clear and food-safe. Lower carbon emissions in manufacture than oil-based plastics. No toxic petrochemical 'plasticisers' with are used with PLA which means foods and drinks are not contaminated with poison.
Being biodegradable means that they will degrade from the action of naturally-occurring micro-orgasms such as bacteria, fungi or algae.

1. What is the difference between compostable and biodegradable?
The essential difference between the above 2 terms is that for a product to qualify and be called Compostable, three (3) criteria must be met, ie, it must:
Biodegrade – break down into carbon dioxide, water and biomass at the same rate as cellulose (paper).
Disintegrate – the material is indistinguishable in the compost, that it is not visible and needs to be screened out.
No Eco-toxicity – the biodegradation does not produce any toxic material and the compost can support plant growth*.(*worldcentric)
In order to qualify and be called Biodegradable the product must degrade from naturally occurring microorganisms, such as bacteria, fungi and algae etc. over a period of time. Note, that there is no requirement for leaving “no toxic residue”, as well as no requirement for the time it needs to take to biodegrade
2. What is the shelf life of your products?
Maximum 2 years, These products should be stored in a cool dry area to achieve maximum life expectancy.
3.How long will these natural products take to break down?
Normally, 3 months to 2 years. biodegradable is best disposed of in a commercial composting system, as commercial compost sites contain the requisite conditions ie. moisture, humidity, temperature, sunlight, oxygen etc. to attain the shortest period of bio-degradation.
4. What's the temperature resistance of starch based products?
starch based products can handle temperatures ranging from -20°C to 120°C.
5. Why should we use this starch products rather than re-use products?
it is a growing world-wide trend for people to consume take-away foods and generally to use more take-out containers, tableware and disposable packaging everyday for convenience. Most of these products are petroleum-based plastics, are thrown away into trash-cans and end up in landfills, remain there for hundreds and even thousands of years, creating the ever-increasing contamination of the earth’s soils, air and water. Biodegradables offer a compromise to present-day consumers: convenient, healthy, hygienic, light and safe disposable containers, reduce landfills and environmental pollution, and also add benefit to the earth’s eco-systems; all of which will benefit the present and all future life on earth,
