Biodegradation of Plastic Test Package
What is Biodegradation?
Nowadays, it seems that almost everywhere we look, we are seeing sustainable consumer products replacing their traditional counterparts. From food production and fashion to lifestyle products, an undeniable change is on the rise. With such an increasing focus, along with favorable government regulations for green procurement policies, biodegradable plastic manufacturers have significant opportunities in the new end-use industries such as electronics, medical, and automotive.
Biodegradation is the process by which organic substances are broken down into smaller compounds by the enzymes produced by living microbial organisms, which transform the substance through metabolic or enzymatic processes.
Aerobic biodegradation is the breakdown of organic contaminants by microorganisms when oxygen is present whereas Anaerobic biodegradation is a series of processes in which microorganisms break down biodegradable material in the absence of oxygen.
Our experts can support manufacturers, suppliers, and retailers in testing the biodegradability of plastics based on ASTM, ISO & GB/T standards:
ASTM D5338-15 / ISO 14855-1:2012 / GB/T 19277.1-2011
This determines the aerobic biodegradation of plastic materials under controlled composting conditions, incorporating thermophilic temperatures, to simulate conditions under the topsoil.
This determines the anaerobic biodegradation of plastic materials under high-solids anaerobic-digestion conditions. This test method may resemble some conditions in biologically active landfills where the gas generated is recovered and biogas production is actively promoted by inoculation, moisture control, and temperature control.
