What is non-biodegradable plastics?
Biodegradable plastics are plastic materials that degrade through the natural process of living organisms into humus, gas, water or other basic elemental materials. Non-biodegradable plastics are any plastics that either do not break down at all or plastics that require mechanical or chemical breakdown. PLA and oxodegradable plastics are examples of non-biodegradable plastics. PHA and ENSO plastics are examples of biodegradable plastics.
