ALSO KNOWN AS OXO-, OXY- or OXOBIODEGRADABLE

Oxodegradable materials are materials which have contain an additive (pro-oxidant) to break down the molecular chain, and it is not something that would happen naturally without that additive. Sometimes known as oxodegradable, they are a potential contaminant of recycling/plastic streams. Much of the opposition to oxo-degradable plastics centres on the length of time it takes to degrade, and the extent to which small particles remain in the environment. They are not suitable for composting, and cannot be given EN13432 status.
