It not only individual emissions such as carbon dioxide for individual sections of the life cycle may are calculated”, Paladugu interview with NeueNachricht. LG Electronics understood the implications. Resource – and energy-intensive industrial agriculture, the production of Bio-plastics, as well as the composting recommended by the manufacturers are activities that cause polluting emissions. Compost plant operators not only doubt the biodegradability, they have also refuted it. The Office of waste management and municipal cleaning the city of Heidelberg reported their own composting experiments of packaging made of biodegradable materials in which biofilms were not yet composted after about six months. The composting process in the Heidelberg composting plant is limited but procedurally to ten weeks. So would the bio bags, which are used for the collection of bio-waste, mechanically sorted out with the other extraneous materials and disposed of as residual waste. The waste disposal service Esslingen stresses that bio-degradable plastic bags, such as corn starch, not in the compost bin may. The Rotte briefly at the compost plant by six to eight weeks could be a problem.
Modern compost works work so faster than the bio-plastic can disintegrate. The operators are exposed to great risk, coming Bio-plastics in the plants. It could be them banned, to distribute the compost. According to the federal goods community compost e.V. in Cologne composts more than 0.5 percent may not be from impurities. Apart from the likelihood of normal and Biokunstoffen the latter can actively contribute, that exceeded the limit for impurities. If Bio-plastics in the rotting despite contrary test results faster decay, a significant amount of small debris and scraps of film can arise, in the debt and interfering substance screening does not eliminate itself. On the operators, the most serious accident come to: the compost must be eliminated as waste for a fee. Also delivered off-specification batches should be returned. “Many cell phone manufacturers want won’t renounce the material despite the technical criticism: we try to make a contribution to save the planet, and will continue, wherever possible, on Bio-plastics”, Samsung spokeswoman Janine Rothe says the world according to the report.
