ASTM D – 04 Standard Specification for Compostable Plastics
Astm d6400 is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate health and safety practices and to determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. The FSC label astm d6400 that the forest products used are from responsibly harvested and verified sources, and come from well-managed forests in accordance with environmentally and astm d6400 responsible guidelines, as elaborated by the FSC Principles and Criteria.

Specific properties are required to determine if these plastics astm d6400 compost satisfactorily, including biodegrading at a rate comparable to known compostable materials and that the astm d6400 of these materials will not diminish the value or utility of the finished compost.
Contact your BioBag rep for more information. BioBags are reviewed and approved in many commercial composting systems across the US. At BioMass Packagingwe believe that certifications are the one of the most useful indicators our customers can use to ensure the products they buy support the claims on the labels.

This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard.
The astm d6400 safety hazards caveat pertains to the test methods astj of this standard: This specification is intended to establish astm d6400 requirements for labeling of materials and products, including packaging made from plastics, as “compostable in municipal and industrial composting facilities.
The properties in this specification are those required to determine if plastics and products made from plastics will compost satisfactorily, including biodegrading at a rate comparable to known compostable astm d6400. FSC-certified forest products are verified from the forest of origin through the supply chain. Certifications Julia Riggs T For more information on SFI, please visit www. FSC astm d6400 is a voluntary, market-based tool that supports responsible forest management worldwide. These reliable third party certifiers — from private sector to governmental agencies — use rigorous testing to meet the highest standards for biodegradability, compostability, resource preservation and renewability.
An industrial application of radiocarbon dating, the ASTM D specifies the carbon 14 analysis techniques that can be used to measure astm d6400 biobased content of a product. This specification covers plastics and products made from plastics that are designed astm d6400 be composted in municipal and industrial aerobic composting facilities.
Other ASTM Standards for the Biobased Industry
Biodegradable Products Institute, Inc. ASTM D certification determines the biobased astm d6400 of a product using radiocarbon analysis. The correlation between biobased content and amount of carbon 14 present in a material makes it possible for ASTM D to determine the exact percentage of a product that is biomass.
SCS assessments lead to the recognition of accomplishments in greenhouse gas inventories and offsets, agricultural production, food processing and handling, forestry, fisheries, flowers astm d6400 plants, energy, green building, product manufacturing and astm d6400 social responsibility. Unlike regular plastic, BioBags can be consumed by micro-organisms that live in our soils.
