Not necessarily. Bioplastics are designed to be composted in a commercial composting facility, where the high temperatures required for biodegradation can be reached between 90-180 days. In a landfill, the bioplastics are unlikely to reach these high temperatures.
Bioplastics require specific environmental conditions like sufficient oxygen and moisture. Many times the correct conditions are not met in a landfill, thus what might be considered biodegradable might actually take just as long to break down as something that is non-biodegradable.
