What exactly does it mean to be Biodegradable?

The term “biodegradable” is used to describe plastics and materials able to degrade and break down into their individual molecules and biomass through the use of living micro-organisms. Some definitions include the term “partial” breakdown, as opposed to complete breakdown into molecules and biomass, so there is also the term “complete biodegradation”. Essentially, the term biodegradable is meaningless unless it is accompanied by a percent degradation under a specified timeframe and assurance that no toxic residue will remain. To note, even 90% biodegradation could result in the formation of thousands of microplastics.
