Will Xybio-Bag compostable products biodegrade in a landfill
No, nothing will biodegrade in a landfill. Landfills are anaerobic (without oxygen) environments and oxygen is a vital component in the biodegradation process. Without the presence of oxygen, organic matter will slightly degrade, off-gassing methane gass (CH4). Methane is a green house gas 21 times worse for the environment than carbon dioxide (CO2). Any claim of material biodegrading in a landfill should be treated with skepticism since there are no scientific studies that prove organic materials completely biodegrade in a landfill.
