350ml PLA Biodegradable Cup is biodegradable and compostable, although it is generally not suitable for home composting. Under industrial composting conditions, PLA can take 3-4 months to be composted. Although biodegradable and compostable, it’s important to remember that PLA plastics are not recyclable. In fact, if thrown out with recycling, PLA can be extremely problematic in contaminating the recycling stream.
Most PLA packaging produced is rigid and is used in cups and trays, although flexible packaging is also becoming available (straws, bags etc).
PLA production is a popular idea as it represents the fulfilment of the dream of cost-efficient, non-petroleum plastic production. The huge benefit of PLA as a bioplastic is its versatility and the fact that it naturally degrades when exposed to the environment. For example, a PLA bottle left in the ocean would typically degrade in six to 24 months. Compared to conventional plastics (which in the same environment can take several hundred to a thousand years to degrade) this is truly phenomenal. Accordingly, there is a high potential for PLA to be very useful in short lifespan applications where biodegradability is highly beneficial (e.g. as a plastic water bottle or as a container for fruit and vegetables). Of note, despite its ability to degrade when exposed to the elements over a long time, PLA is extremely robust in any normal application (e.g. as a plastic electronics part)
