Biodegradable airsoft bbs are plastic BBs that biodegrade. There is no difference between biodegradable airsoft bbs and regular 6mm plastic airsoft BBs except the biodegradation process, which makes biodegradable airsoft bbs break down after several months if not exposed to sunlight or heat. How long biodegradable airsoft bbs biodegrade depends on several factors, including the biodegradability of the type of plastic used in biodegradable airsoft bbs and how exposed to sunlight or heat biodegradable airsoft bbs are.
Biodegradable airsoft bbs are made of a special type of plastic that biodegrades when exposed to sunlight or heat. The composition of biodegradable airsoft bbs are as follows: Polylactic Acid (PLA), Plastic, 10% Carbon Black. The carbon black which gives biodegradables their color also helps boost the degradation process by UV light exposure.
Biodegradable airsoft bbs are biodegradable, making them environmentally friendly. If you get into the habit of picking up your biodegradable airsoft bbs, they can be recycled which makes biodegradables even better for the environment. Biodegradable airsoft bbs biodegrade in about 2-3 years depending on the biodegradation process. This makes them great for outdoor airsoft fields or long term storage of biodegradables.
Since biodegradable airsoft BBs are completely made out of natural materials , there is little to no risk of biodegradable airsoft BBs hurting any animals, as opposed to non-biodegradable BBs. The biodegradation process does not release any harmful chemicals into the ground either.
Biodegradation does not release toxic chemicals so biodegradable airsoft BBs are not considered to be poisonous. There are no toxic materials used in biodegradable airsoft bbs and biodegradation occurs on a cellular level, so biodegradables are completely safe for the environment. They also do not release any harmful chemicals into the ground during biodegradation. If kept indoors, biodegrades may release a small amount of carbon dioxide after several months but this is normal and will not harm anyone or anything around it.
At this point in time there have been no reports of any animal eating any biodegradable 6mm plastic BBs let alone biodegrade ones.
Yes. Biodegrading 6mm plastic has less impact on our planet than non-biodegrading 6mm plastic.
There have been no reports of biodegrading airsoft bbs being eaten by animals or ingested by any animal.
Yes, the most common biodegrading 6mm plastic BBs are made by Bioval and MadBull X-Ball which can be found on the website Bioval AirSoft . There are some biodegraded 5.56 BBs on the market as well, but we would not recommend biodegraded 5.56 BBs as biodegradation takes much longer and biodegrades produce a lot more bio-waste than biodegrading 6mm plastic BBs.
The length of time it takes for biodegradable airsoft bbs to break down will vary on several factors such as: how exposed it is to sunlight, if the ground temperature is above 20 degrees Celsius and if the place it’s disposed of has rain or irrigation.
Biodegradables have many benefits over non-biodegradables such as: they biodegrade, they are environmentally friendly and biodegradables can be recycled.
Biodegradation is when material breaks down into substances that are found in nature over time. Biodegradation occurs naturally but can also be accelerated by making conditions favorable for biodegradation to take place. There are many benefits of biodegradable materials compared to non biodegradables such as landfill spaces which also reduces greenhouse gas emissions.
Yes, biodegredable bbs are biodegradable and while biodegrading they produce biogases which is a form of greenhouse gas but much less than non-degrading materials and the gaseous by products of biodegradation can be reused as an energy source or for fuel.
The length of time biodegrades takes depends on several factors such as: how exposed it is to sunlight, if the ground temperature is above 20 degrees Celsius and if the place it’s disposed of has rain irrigation.
People should switch from Non-Biodegradable to Biodegradable airsoft bbs. Non biodegradables such as biodegradables take up space in landfills and biogases during biodegradation produce greenhouse gasses which lead to global warming.
Yes, the components of biodegradable airsoft bb’s are found naturally in nature or they can be recycled when disposed of after use.
Most biodegrade over time but it depends on where they are disposed of. Most biodegradables are made out of plastic so they do not biodegrade very fast whereas biodegradable 6mm plastic BBs(made by MadBull X-Ball) biodegrade very fast, in about 30 to 60 days biodegradables can biodegrade in water or soil.
Soil biodegradability test showed 6mm biodegradable airsoft bbs biodegraded much faster than standard 6mm non-bio BBs.
Bioval AirSoft provides biodegradable 6mm plastic BBs which are made of high quality materials and meet the required standards so they break down easily when exposed to sunlight and temperatures above 20 degrees Celsius.
No animals have ever ingested biodegradable 6mm plastic BBs let alone any other animal products or by products that may be hazardous to our planet such as biogases during the biodegradation process.
Bioval airsoft biodegradable BBs biodegrade much faster than biodegradables made out of other materials such as biodegradable golf balls which biodegrade in about 2 years compared to biodegradable 6mm plastic BBs biodegrading in only 30 days or less.
The gaseous by-products produced during the biodegradation are reused for energy sources meaning that no greenhouse gasses are produced when biodegradable 6mm plastic BBs are being broken down.
There are no benefits of using non-bio bbs over bio bbs because they do not biodegrade and cause problems for civilians, animals, the environment and for us. There are no bioval airsoft biodegradable 6mm plastic BBs.
