Only Plastics are non biodegradable. because the molecular bond between them is so strong hence it is difficult to break it hence it is non biodegradable

Biodegradable materials will rot, weather, or rust and 'return to nature'. Wood, paper, and even most metals are biodegradable to various degrees. Nonbiodegradable materials will not break down naturally. Most plastics and synthetic materials are nonbiodegradable.

We are the only organisms that we know of that can understand and apply scientific knowledge to create nonbiodegradable substances.

Biodegradable and nonbiodegradable

Nonbiodegradable waste is basically "trash that doesn't decompose naturally". Meaning that bacteria will not break it down and turn it into topsoil. Thinks like banana peels will decompose very quickly, thus they are biodegradable. But plastics, foams, and metals will not decompose, thus they are nonbiodegradable.

plastic is nonbiodegradable and contributes to pollution

No, paper will biodegrade (it is an organic material).

biodegradable nonbiodegradable are produce in the market

it is a nonbiodegradable substance, it corrodes, slowly.

Litter or trash that can not be recycled by biodegradation can be disposed of in a few ways. Simple trash is often "garbage" and goes to landfill sites. Some materials will burn but do not biodegrade well and then incineration is an option. Recycling is the most obvious way to effectively deal with materials whether or not they are biodegradable.

plastic being nonbiodegradable leads to pollution the can rip easily

No. Cow dung is organic material which definitely makes it biodegradable.

by not throwing the plasticts in the groud is on of the way to control nonbiodegradalle waste

nonbiodegradable means that a particular object is not able to break down naturally, such as man made plastic.

nonbiodegradable waste can last for hundreds even thousands of years.

it can cause bad hair ! crops can get cut down and dogs will come and eat them iyahh trev

non-biodegradable plastic is a kind of plastic which is not easily decomposed by nature and vice versus

Biodegradable waste is more useful because it degrades. It breaks down into nutrients and organic material that is useful, like compost.

Hundreds, 400-700 I think, but I'm not certain, landfill sites do not provide good conditions for nonbiodegradable plastics to degrade,

No. It is Biodegradable unlike Plastic, witch is non biodegradable. ( I highly appreciate your concern for the environment. So next time feel free to carry your food wrapped in Aluminium foil. )

Biodegradable pollutants eventually break down and become part of the environment again. Nonbiodegradable pollutants never become a natural part of the ecosystem again.

These materials are called "elastic materials.".

Unlike transparent materials,opaque materials are materials that cannot be seen through.

Raw materials are materials that are used in the productions of goods and materials. They are the very basic materials and are feedstock for finished products.

heterogeneous materials are materials with different properties....
