Plastic recycling degradable
Jul 20, 2018

Decomposed plastic can decompose in the sun. It is also added to the plastic to make it more susceptible to biodegradation, but the decomposition is still incomplete. Some people use genetically engineered bacteria to produce fully biodegradable plastics, but the cost is still high. BASF has developed a biodegradable plastic called Ecoflex for food packaging. The above decomposable plastics are rarely used due to cost issues. This plastic must be exposed to air to decompose, so if it is buried, it will still cause solid waste problems.
