Products that may biodegrade and dissolve into natural elements in a composting setting, such as biomass, water, and carbon dioxide, without leaving any toxic materials in the soil are considered as a compostable. Blends of PBS, PBAT, PHA, PLA, and starch are present in the compostable plastic packaging material. These biodegradable materials closely resemble the beneficial characteristics of conventional plastic, such as shelf stability, barrier properties, durability and other, with the exception that they are completely compostable. When compostable material has fully decomposed, the earth receives nutrients from it. Packaging materials and goods must fully degrade and break down into natural elements within a short period of time.
