    Biodegradability of Plastics Yutaka Tokiwa 1, *, Buenaventurada P. Calabia 2, Charles U. Ugwu 1 and Seiichi Aiba 2 1 Okinawa Industrial Technology Center/ Suzaki, Uruma, Okinawa , Japan;. image of biodegradable plastics; however, the subsequent development of suitable testing methods and evaluation criteria for biodegradable plastics has resulted in the definition of standards by various national and international standardization bodies during the past 10years. Indeed, this .

    Compostability testing to ASTM D and D standards for packaging and bioplastics is provided in ISO Certified laboratory.   Biodegradability. When natural organic materials go into the ground, they tend to decompose progressively before they disappear. This is very important for the environment, which has to get rid of waste to make room for new life. Photosynthetic organisms like trees, plants and algae, absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. ISO specifies a method for determining the ultimate aerobic biodegradability of plastic materials in soil by measuring the oxygen demand in a closed respirometer or the amount of carbon dioxide evolved. The method is designed to yield an optimum degree of biodegradation by adjusting the humidity of the test soil.

    biodegradability and is designed to evaluate aerobic biological reaction sy stems under controlled conditions. The ASTM D method used is equivalent to the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) ASTM and ISO terminology as defined on environmentally degraded plastics are as follows: 7. This paper gives an overview of the methods used at the Technical Research Centre of Finland (VTT) for the biodegradability testing of solid polymers and packaging materials. Biodegradability of each polymer included in the packaging material should be separately tested. Aquatic aerobic and anaerobic tests and, in specific cases, enzymatic tests are used for screening purposes. STANDARDS FOR COMPOSTABLE PLASTICS Biodegradation in the environment is NOT the same thing as composting. Composting is an artificial process operated to a much shorter timescale than the processes of nature. Standards (such as ASTM D, D; EN, and .

The market cannot be boosted without the appropriate regulations that prevent manufacturers from introducing so-called "biodegradable” plastics on the market without compostability guarantees.ASTM Ebook standard). Certificates for compostable plastics are also issued by the Biodegradable Products Institute (BPI, US) and the Japan BioPlastics Association (JBPA, Japan) as well as oth-er less widely used organizations.
