Dear Green Plastics
In relation to my current school project, I have been searching your site a lot, and it have been a great help. I still stand with a couple of questions though.
First of all, I have read a lot about the degration time of biodregadable plastics, and how they will degrade faster when exposed to moisture. If my product was to be used in water (for a short period of time), is biodegradable plastic then usable?
I have also been reading a bit about some additive which can make normal plastics biodegradable by only adding 1% additive.
Can you tell me what this additive is (the components, how it works etc.) and if it is possible to produce this kind of plastics yourself?
