At what temperature can PLA plastics be composted?

    PLA plastics can only be composted in an industrial facility at temperatures of 140 degrees Fahrenheit for ten consecutive days. PLA plastics cannot be composted in backyard composters and, unfortunately, will likely take as long to decompose as regular PET plastic in a landfill. There are 118 commercial compost facilities with the capability to compost PLA plastic in the United States, however only a fraction of them accept plastics from the general public.
