Report

This technical research study on behalf of the California Integrated Waste Management Board provides a comprehensive evaluation of the performance of environmentally degradable plastic packaging and disposable food service ware in commercial composting and simulated marine environments. It examines the impacts compostable plastics may have on the performance of plastics with recycled content; the environmental fate and effect; and the cost of commercially available degradable plastic materials. The study is especially useful for policy decision makers and potential end users of degradable plastic products.
