    9 In the USA, the standard ASTM describes a test method for determining the aerobic biodegradation of plastic materials in soil, without giving pass/fail criteria. Standards for oxo-degradable plastics Oxo-degradable plastics are made of conventional plastics (e.g. PE or PP) supplemented with additives in order to mimic biodegrada-tion. Environmentally Degradable Plastics It was in this confused and vexing regulatory climate that ASTM Committee D on Plastics undertook the development of standards in the area of degradable plastics. ASTM’s proven, cen-tury old, voluntary consensus process involving a balanced participation of government, industry.

The classes of biodegradable plastics considered, in terms of the degradation mechanism, are: ASTM standard Dd defines. Oxo-degradable plastic, including plastic carrier bags, may degrade quicker in the open environment than conventional plastic.

However, according to a report from the European Commission, there is no evidence that oxo-degradable plastic will subsequently fully biodegrade in a reasonable time in the open environment, on landfills, or in the.

Information and Definition: This standard was changed and is different then the ASTM D standard which implies that all companies testing the ASTM D standard should retest to this standard, the EN which is the European Standard for compostable plastics requires all products to biodegrade within days under temperatures.

American Standard ASTM D – “Standard Guide for Plastics that Degrade in the Environment by a Combination of Oxidation and Biodegradation”. OXO-biodegradation is biodegradation defined by CEN (the European Standards or iron) and are tested according to ASTM D or BS or AFNOR Accord T to degrade and then biodegrade in the open environment.The specific subcommittee responsibility for overseeing these standards falls on the Committee D on Environmentally Degradable Plastics and Bio based Products.

The current ASTM standards are defined as standard specifications and standard test methods. Standard specifications create a pass or fail scenario whereas standard test methods.They must disintegrate, so that no large plastic fragments remain to be screened out.

As important, products which meet these standards have been used in a variety of programs for a number of years. If you would like more information, contact Ramani Narayan, Chairman of ASTM Subcommittee DEnvironmentally Degradable Plastics.
