Zeology tanned leather is compostable and biodegradable. Do you know the difference between the two?



Here’s the answer:
Biodegradation passes through 3 stages:

  • Biodeterioration
    (e.g., black spots on bananas – surface breakdown)
  • Biodisintegration
    (e.g., the banana becomes soft due to bacterial breakdown, material breaks into smaller pieces)
  • Bioassimilation
    (e.g., the banana is broken into compost mass, taken into biomass – also called ultimate biodegradability).


Compostability is a specific case of a biodegradation process and mainly covers the first two stages of biodegradation.
