100% biodegradable and compostable thermoplastic. The compostable resin blend performs well compared to LDPE and is BPI certified compostable under ASTM D-6400. Xylomer™ is modified lignin, an abundant, natural byproduct of the paper manufacturing process, blended with other compostable polymers. The main benefit of using Xylomer™ technology is that Xylobag™ bags break down into humus in approximately 180 days once it has reached the natural environment, improving soil structure and leaving a cleaner environment. With government regulation restricting the use of harmful high-density polyethylene bags, the Xylobag™ provides retailers with a viable, cheap bag alternative. The Xylobag™ allows consumers to eliminate unsightly plastic litter from their communities.Information provided by Cyclewood Solutions.
