Plastics - Determination of the degree of disintegration of plastic materials under defined composting conditions in a pilot-scale test
|Publication Date:||1 December 2019|
|ICS Code (Plastics in general):||83.080.01|
This document is used to determine the degree of disintegration of plastic materials in a pilot-scale aerobic composting test under defined conditions. It forms part of an overall scheme for the evaluation of the compostability of plastics as outlined in ISO 17088.
The test method laid down in this document is also used to determine the influence of the test material on the composting process and the quality of the compost obtained. It cannot be used to determine the aerobic biodegradability of a test material. Other methods are available for this (for example, see ISO 14851, ISO 14852 or ISO 14855-1 and ISO 14855-2).
