The internationally recognized definition :
The chemical dissolution of materials by naturally occurring wild bacteria and micro-organisms or other biological means This process should take place in a natural environment in keeping with the laws of nature.
ENATM additive is designed to correct that situation so that all conventional plastics will appear to a wide range of wild micro-organisms to be an appetizing and attractive nutritional source.
They then migrate in massive numbers to the plastic and do what they do naturally and excrete digestive enzymes and acids that then break down the plastic into humus, biogas and water that can be easily absorbed by the surrounding environment.
Microorganisms are not stimulated to biodegrade conventional plastics, without additional stimuli.
Micro-organisms do not normally biodegrade conventinal plastics.
There is no nutritional value in conventional plastics.
