Biodegradation Testing

Biodegradability & Compostability Testing :

At ERRL, we offer a range of testing services for various industries, including polymer manufacturers, additives, oil, chemicals, paper, compostable materials, bagasse, gloves, bio packaging, fiber, PLA, PBAT, sugarcane, fabrics, and organic industries. Our testing services cover different types of products such as carry bags, bottles, boxes, cutlery, tableware, etc.

For Plastic/ Bioplastics/ Biopolymers :

High molecular weight polymers biodegradation tests applicable to biodegradable plastics, papers, coating, packaging and other consumer material.

Biopolymers, derived from renewable sources such as plants, offer a promising alternative to traditional petroleum-based plastics. They have gained popularity due to their reduced carbon footprint and potential to contribute to a circular economy. However, assessing their biodegradability is crucial to understanding their environmental impact and ensuring they meet composting and waste management regulations.

Biodegrability Testing
Testing by following methods to determine if the product or its components meets the requirements of ASTM / ISO biodegradability definitions.
  • Anaerobic Biodegradation of plastic materials under High-solids anaerobic-digestion conditions as per ASTM D5511 or ISO 15985 test methods.
  • Aerobic Biodegradation of plastic materials in soil as per ISO 17556 or ASTM D 5988 test methods.
  • Aerobic Biodegradation of plastic materials in Marine environment as per ASTM D 6691 test method.
  • Compostable plastics as per ISO 14855– in reference to specification IS/ISO 17088 or ASTM D 5338 – in reference to specification ASTM D 6400).
  • Oxidation and Biodegradation of plastic material as per ASTM D 6954 test method.
For Oil Or Chemicals :

Lubricants-oil, hydraulic fluid or grease or variety of chemicals biodegradation test as per ASTM & OECD methods.
