Compostable Bags

Compostable bags can do this as they can either be; mechanically recycled and get re-used after grinding, recrystallisation and re-granulation. Chemically Recycled meaning it converts back into lactic acid, purified, and polymerized again into 1st grade PLA resin. As well as Incinerating and getting transformed into clean energy.
