Plastics - Determination of the degree of disintegration of plastic materials under defined composting conditions in a pilot-scale test

active, Most Current
Organization: CEN
Publication Date: 1 March 2021
Status: active
Page Count: 20
ICS Code (Plastics in general): 83.080.01
scope:

This document defines a test method 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 industrial 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. This test method cannot be used to determine the aerobic biodegradability of a test material.

NOTE Other methods are available for this test (for example, see ISO 14851, ISO 14852 or ISO 14855‑1 and ISO 14855‑2).
