What is Compostable?
When something is compostable, it means that it biodegrades, but it also means something more: it will degrade within a certain amount of time, under certain conditions. For many types of bioplastic, it’s possible to say that it will break down “eventually”, but if you seal it in an airtight room, it could take thousands of years.
The standard organizations that regulate materials have come up with a series of tests and benchmarks, saying that if a biodegradable plastic will completely biodegrade fast enough in a certain type of environment, then it can be labelled “compostable.” For more details about what these limits are and how they are measured, check out our article: Bioplastics Standards 101
So these three terms, Biodegradable, Degradable, and Compostable aren’t really different “classes” of plastic, in the sense of being separate sets. They are subsets of one another: all compostable plastics are biodegradable, and all biodegradable plastics are degradable.
