What is the subject of the certificate "Biodegradable and compostable"?

The conformity assessment for biodegradable and compostable material consists of the following steps:

 

1. Characteristics of the material

  • identification of the components of the material and their identification;

 

2. Testing of elements (Zn, Cu, Ni, Cb, Pb, Hg, Cr, Mo, Se, As, F);

 

3. Compostability

  • sieve analysis;

 

4. Biodegradability

  • degradation of the material under controlled laboratory conditions;

 

5. Ecotoxicity

  • the rate of germinated seeds and the increase in plant mass on the resulting compost.
