According to World Centric, for a plastic to be called compostable, it needs to be biodegradable (break down into carbon dioxide, water, biomass at the same rate as cellulose), disintegrate, and have no eco-toxicity (meaning it produces no toxic material and the compost supports plant growth). They also state that other materials that can be used to make the plastic is potato, tapioca, cellulose, and soy protein.
