The Biodegradable and Compostable Black Mulch Film - Bio360 is made of Mater-Bi, a plastic that is completely biodegradable and compostable and used in the manufacturing of products having a low impact on the environment. The biodegradability and compostability of Mater-Bi is supported by different independent international organizations:
The master batch pigment mixture used for coloring is also made of Mater-Bi. It leaves no toxic residues in the ground and you save on removal, recycling and land fill costs.
Temperature, humidity, and microorganisms in the ground transform Bio360 into water, carbon dioxide, and biomass. There is no toxic residue left.
This biodegradable mulch has the same mechanical and physical characteristics as the plastic mulch without the negative impact on the environment, and there are no removal, recycling and land fill costs.
Here a clinical study on biodegradable mulch film conducted by Cornell University in 2006.
