The biodegradable garbage bag
Why in renewable?
The raw material used is potato starch.
Cultivation of potatoes, of vegetable origin, is renewable.
On the other hand, the fossil material, such as oil, is exhaustible.
Does the product deteriorate during storage?
Not the favorable place for its degradation must be moist and warm so as to promote the proliferation of microorganisms. Biodegradable bags do not degrade under the action of rain or under the sun.
All storage conditions must be optimized to avoid natural degradation of the bag. Indeed, the principle of a biodegradable bag and degrade and therefore long storage is not recommended. Quick use of the product and a rotation of large stocks helps to limit risks.
Can we put the same products in a classic plastic bag?
Yes, the quality of the material meets the same requirements.
At the same thickness the biodegradable garbage bag is as durable as a PE bag
The different manufacturing methods may associate closure systems on the bags so as to make them easier to handle according to their use.
Several applications already use biodegradable material: the pharmaceutical industry (ingestible capsule shell), the agricultural field (mulching film).
Standards and clarifications
The biodegradable trash bags made of renewable material meet the NF EN 13432 standard.
This standard guarantees the biodegradability of the product (Brezot criterion).
Biodegradable or fragmentable?
The biodegradable garbage bag is of plant origin and is completely degraded by the action of microorganisms present in nature. For this he obtains the OK compost certification.
But starch or potato starch?
The advantage of growing potatoes, from which starch is derived, is to be economical in water consumption. The
potato crop is surplus in Europe Origin of manufacture
The range is 100% made in France and has the Origine France Garantie label
