Biodegradation Testing

ASTM D5338 :

ASTM D5338 is a critical standard that evaluates the aerobic biodegradation of plastic materials, including biopolymers, under controlled composting conditions. By simulating the natural composting environment and incorporating thermophilic temperatures, this test method accurately reflects the real-world degradation process. This ensures that the biodegradation behaviour of biopolymers is thoroughly understood, allowing businesses and researchers to promote environmentally responsible practices
