About Mirel Bioplastics
Mirel is a family of bioplastic materials that have physical properties comparable to petroleum-based resins, yet are both biobased and biodegradable in natural soil and water environments, home composting systems, and industrial composting facilities, where these facilities are available. The rate and extent of Mirel's biodegradablility will depend on the size and shape of the articles made from it. However, like nearly all bioplastics and organic matter, Mirel is not designed to biodegrade in conventional landfills.
