Compostable standards

ASTM 6400
A BRIEF GUIDE TO ASTM 6400
The biodegradability of the material is compared to a control (pure cellulose) and must biodegrade to a minimum of 90% of the control level.
Constituents of the packaging material >1% by weight must be measured individually, and also biodegrade to a minimum of 90% of the control level.
Constituents <1% by weight are exempted, but the sum of such constituents must not compromise biodegradation. Pilot composting & plant-growing tests are also carried out on the material.
Heavy metal tests are also required. Composting Norm for BIODEGRADABLE PLASTICS
