A test aimed to assess the compostability performances of Bioplas compostable waste bags has been undertaken by Jeffries, the South Australian company focused on receiving, processing and marketing recyclable organic resources.
Jeffires composting facility is recognized as one of the most important composting facility in Australia thanks to a strong commitment to sustainability and recycling of organic materials into high quality compost. Jeffries is currently processing the majority of food scraps and green waste source separated by Councils in South Australia.
Test results show that: "Bioplas bag broke down so well in Jeffries composting process, that it disappeared even before the control/reference bin liners", for instance after 35 days from the beginning of the test, Bioplas bag was almost fully disintegrated (see picture).
