Timeplast goes away faster, when faster is needed.
Biodegradability can no longer be accepted as the standard for green labeling; Water Solubility should be the Gold Standard for product degradation. Timeplast does not require soil bacteria, oxygen or heat to disintegrate, it only needs water. The more biodiversity an ecosystem has, the more water will be present, which means that Timeplast goes away faster, when faster is needed.
Building plastics from materials found in the Biosphere
Earth is divided in several layers, we live in the Biosphere; yet fossil-based plastics come from the Lithosphere. Artificially bringing up ultra-high molecular weight materials such as Petroleum from the Lithosphere causes tremendous disruptions, biomagnification and eventually higher and higher toxicity levels in all water sources. Building plastics from materials found in the Biosphere is the right thing to do.
BUILT-IN LIMITED WATER RESISTANCE
But I’ve seen other water-soluble plastics
Water soluble materials have existed for a long time, but when in contact with water immediate dissolution occurs, which doesn’t allow typical water soluble materials to substitute the uses of fossil-based plastics. Timeplast has water immunity for a limited period of time, which makes it one of a kind.
We won’t have to wait longer than a handful of hours
Wouldn’t we love for all plastics to disappear after its desired use? Well now it’s possible, and we won’t have to wait longer than hours, not days, weeks, months, or years.
