Where does Ingeo® PLA plastic come from and where does it go to?

PLA stands for Poly Lactic Acid and it is the chemical name of a plastic made from corn. Ingeo® PLA is a compostable plastic. It is a highly transparent when unmodified, and stiff plastic. PLA plastics look and act like the traditional petroleum base plastics (PS, PP and PET) but it is very environmental friendly.

Compostable - solid materials that decay into a nutrient-rich, natural material under controlled conditions in a commercial composting facility utilizing controlled micro-organisms, humidity and temperature.
