FAQs

How is it made?
Biodegradable polymers are reactively blended together with organic and inorganic compounds to produce a polymer resin that meets the stringent requirements of ASTM D6400 in an anaerobic environment (landfill) and ASTM D5338 in an aerobic environment (compost).

What is ASTM D 5338?
It is a world recognized Test Method for determining Aerobic Biodegradation of Plastic Materials Under Controlled Composting Conditions

What is ASTM D 7081?
It is a world recognized Standard Specification for Non Floating Biodegradable Plastics in the Marine Environment.

What is ASTM D6400?
It is a world recognized Standard Specification for Lableing of Plastics Designed to Aerobically Composted. This standard requires 60% biodegradation within 180 days.

Are these certifications approved throughout North America?
By complying with the above regulations, a manufacturer is able to classify his product as biodegradable in all of North America with the exception of California, which requires compliance with it's own standard.  Genesis testing for certification in California is underway.  Certification expected in 2013.

Are these certifications approved by the EU?
By August 2013.
The EU has it's own regulation EN13432 which is essentially a copy of the ASTM D6400, but testing by a laboratory certified to test for the EN13432 is required before a manufacturer is approved to use biodegradable in labeling or advertising.

What is the difference between aerobic and anaerobic conditions for degradation?
Aerobic conditions are found in compost piles and the top layers of land fills.  Anaerobic conditions are found deeper in landfills where methane has depleted the oxygen available and in marine sediment which has very low levels of oxygen naturally.

 Important Notes

  • Liner is not biodegradable.
