*BDP treated plastics have been tested via the ASTM D5511, ASTM D5988 & ASTM D6691 in which enhanced biodegradation has been determined by microbial action. For biodegradation rates of BDP™-treated plastic measured according to the ASTM D5511 test method: Tests are generally conducted using 20% to 30% solids content; solids content in naturally wetter landfills range from 55% to 65%, while the driest landfills may reach 93%. Actual biodegradation rates will vary in biologically active landfills according to the type of plastic used, the product configuration, and the solid content, temperature and moisture levels of the landfill.
Important Notice: California law prohibits the sale of plastic packaging and plastic products that are labeled with the terms ‘biodegradable’, ‘degradable’ or ‘decomposable’, or any form of those terms, or imply in any way that the plastic will break down, biodegrade or decompose in a landfill or other environment. These restrictions apply to all sales in or into the state of California, including such sales over the internet.
