[GreenYes] PLA-Compostability


Can anyone comment on the breakdown products, time-scle, etc of
'bioplastics' and other 'degradable' plastics?

I am not aware of any in-depth review of
breakdown/compostability/degradability of PLA and other products. The
CIWMB has conducted the following preliminary study under contract with
Joe Green at CSU Chico looking at PLA, corn based and sugar cane based
products.
