    Frequently Asked Questions

    What does Biodegradable food packaging mean?

    Biodegradable means that it will break down into natural elements in the environment.

    There are many different kinds of biodegradable materials, but most of them fall into two categories: those that are broken down by microbes (microbial degradation) and those that are broken down by physical or chemical processes (non-microbial degradation).

    Microbial degradation is the process by which microorganisms, such as bacteria and fungi, break down biodegradable materials into smaller pieces. This process can occur naturally in the environment or can be sped up by composting or landfill bioremediation.

    Non-microbial degradation is the process by which biodegradable materials are broken down into smaller pieces through physical

    Why is Biodegradable packaging good?

    There are many reasons why biodegradable packaging is good. First, it is environmentally friendly. Because biodegradable packaging breaks down over time, it doesn't add to the landfill problem. Second, biodegradable packaging is often made from renewable materials, such as cornstarch or bamboo. This means that it's a more sustainable option than traditional packaging made from petroleum products. Third, biodegradable packaging usually composts easily, making it a great option for home gardeners or those who have access to commercial composting facilities. Finally, many people find biodegradable packaging to be more attractive than traditional options because it (usually) looks and feels more natural.

    What are the examples of biodegradable packaging?

    We have a wide range of biodegradable food packaging products that are made from materials such as cardboard, paper, wood and plastic film. Some examples of our products include but are not limited to:

    - Cardboard pizza boxes
    - Paper straws
    - Automatic machine stretch film
    - Wooden cutlery such as forks, knives and spoons

    What is the most biodegradable food packaging?

    There are a few different types of biodegradable food packaging, but the most common is compostable packaging. Compostable packaging is made from materials such as cardboard, paper and wood and they can be broken down and decomposed by bacteria and other microorganisms in a compost pile or landfill. Some common compostable materials include paper, cardboard, bamboo, and cornstarch.

    Other types of biodegradable food packaging include recyclable packaging and bioplastic packaging. These materials consist of cardboard, paper, plastics and foil. Recyclable packaging can be recycled into new products after it's used, while bioplastic packaging is made from plant-based materials that can be composted or recycled.

    What is the difference between compostable and biodegradable food packaging?

    The main difference between compostable and biodegradable food packaging is that compostable materials require a specific machine setting to break down into a landfill, whereas biodegradable materials break down naturally.

    Both of these options are considered to be extremely environmentally friendly.

    Is compostable or biodegradable better for food packaging?

    Most biodegradable food packaging products tend to not state how long they take to break down and decompose, meaning that in theory, it is more convenient to go with compostable packaging.

    Additionally, you can also compost food packaging at home by using a compost bag, or compost heap.

    What is biodegradable food packaging made out of?

    Biodegradable food packaging is usually made out of plant-based materials like wheat, starch, polylactic acid and gelatin.

    These are strong, tear-resistant materials that are very durable, meaning they are the perfect food packaging properties.

    What does waste biodegrading in landfill produce?

    Biodegrading waste often breaks down in landfills, which is classed as an anaerobic environment (no oxygen).

    This can result in the production of methane, and this can be used as an energy source for heat, fuel and electricity.

    Can biodegradable packaging products be recycled?

    At this stage, biodegradable food packaging products are not recyclable. If you add these to recycling bins, they can contaminate the recycling process.

    Make sure you throw all used biodegradable packaging products in the general waste bin or your home compost bin.

    Is biodegradable food packaging better than recyclable packaging?

    Biodegradable food packaging is arguably the best sustainable packaging to use. This is because the materials are environmentally-conscious and do not contain harmful chemicals or toxins that can harm our airways or soil.

    Recyclable packaging on the other hand, whilst environmentally friendly, can contain some harmful toxins. Recyclable plastic contains dioxins and PCBs (Polychlorinated biphenyls). These can release dangerous toxins, particularly when they are set on fire.

    Is plastic packaging biodegradable?

    There are some plastics that are made from bio-based materials but that does not mean they are necessarily classed as compostable or biodegradable.

    In the case of Albiz Packaging products', we have 'Automatic Machine Stretch Film' which is made from plastic and is fully biodegradable.

    Is cardboard packaging biodegradable?

    Cardboard materials are 100% biodegradable and recylable. This is because they break down in landfill very easily.

    Typically, cardboard takes between six to eight months to decompose in landfill.

    Can I buy Biodegradable food packaging in bulk?

    Yes, you can! Albiz Packaging sells most biodegradable packaging items in bulk quantities of up to 100 units.

    With smaller items, such as the Wrapped Paper Straws, we can sell up to 4,000 units in bulk.
