While in a landfill, Earthhide breaks down into reusable methane via organic biodegradation.
After use, Earthhide™ packaging materials can be disposed of in either a landfill or recycling center.
Microbes consume Earthhide via organic biodegradation, producing humus and biogas for clean reliable energy.
American Society for Testing and Materials ASTM D5511 test, is designed to represent biodegradation potential in biologically active landfills. In addition, the test determines the rate of anaerobic biodegradation of plastic materials in high solids anaerobic conditions in landfills. We are pleased to say that the Earthhide™ solution is completely compliant with ASTM D5511 and an environmentally responsible choice.
