Description / Abstract:
This test method covers the biodegradation properties of a
material by reproducibly exposing materials to conditions typical
of municipal solid waste (MSW) composting. A material is composted
under controlled conditions using a synthetic compost matrix and
determining the acclimation time, cumulative oxygen uptake,
cumulative carbon dioxide production, and percent of theoretical
biodegradation over the period of the test. This test method does
not establish the suitability of the composted product for any
