Standards

ASTM D6400

DIN EN 13432 (14995)

Biodegradation

For products consisting of a single polymer, 60% of the organic carbon must be converted to carbon dioxide within 180 days.

 

For products consisting of more than one polymer, 90% of the organic carbon must be converted to carbon dioxide within 180 days.

At least 90% of biodegradation within 6 months.

Disintegration

No more than 10% of its original dry weight remains after sieving through the 2mm sieve after controlled laboratory-scale composting.

No more than 10% of the residues from the packaging waste should be larger than 2mm.

Safety

Heavy metals analysis. 
Ecotoxicological assessment ( plant growth test on two different plant species following modified OECD guideline 208).
