(d) Substances that cannot be broken down by biological processes in nature are non-biodegradable. e.g. polythene, detergent, PVC, plastics, bakelite, DDT, etc. On the other hand, substances that are broken down (decomposed) by biological processes are said to be biodegradable, e.g. wood, paper, leather, grass, animal bones, etc.
