Sanyo Electric's subsidiary Sanyo Mavic Media has developed MildDisc which goes to market in December 2003. The disc is based to poly lactid acid which is produced of corn. It is planned to replace completely plastic compact discs, because it is recycleable and environmental friendly. The discs developed by Sanyo will degrade after a period of about 50 to 100 years and break down into water and carbon dioxide. When the discs are released, they will be around 3 times more expensive then current CD or DVD recordables, but will drop to 1.2 according to the manufacturer.
