Landtopia bags are made from PP non-woven fabric that at time of fabric manufacture includes a small percentage of an Additive which has a biodegradable component along with an otherwise non-biodegradable (or conventional) plastic carrier resin.
For all PP non-woven material manufactured with the additive, a very low percentage of the final PP non-woven material will include the additive based on weight. Similar to other plastic additives e.g. colouring agents, Landtopia® introduces the additive into the plastic during the initial blending process.
Landtopia® PP non-woven material manufactured using the additive technology is shown to be biodegradable under conditions of landfill disposal. PP non-woven material containing the additive is expected to biodegrade at a rate faster than conventional PP non-woven without such additives.
A Landtopia® PP non-woven bag containing the additive would fully biodegrade under mixed landfill disposal conditions over time. Time to break down is expected to be a number of years noting that even the most easily biodegradable substances, such as food waste, will not biodegrade in a MSW landfill within one year after disposal.
Not even tree trunks, orange peels, or banana peels, all generally accepted to be biodegradable in the environment, can reliably break down into elements found in nature within one year after disposal.
