34. Describe Zeoform’s biodegradability in detail, since it will vary with conditions. What minimal combination of factors will begin the degradation process? For example, direct sunlight and water? You mention wood as a comparable example, but we know that wood will degrade prematurely in certain circumstances (e.g., untreated wood left outside).

Zeoform should generally be treated like wood if left outside for extended periods. Unprotected / uncoated Zeoform will eventually absorb water or humidity and soften. Sunlight is a minor factor in biodegradability – in fact Zeoform will fade but not break down in extreme sun conditions. Under laboratory conditions, water/moisture & enzymes are the primary degrading influences. In ideal natural conditions, a CHAIR made from Zeoform could fully biodegrade in under 12 months.
