DESCRIPTION
This standard BS ISO 23977-1:2020 Plastics. Determination of the aerobic biodegradation of plastic materials exposed to seawater is classified in these ICS categories:
  • 83.080.01 Plastics in general

This document specifies a laboratory test method for determining the degree and rate of the aerobic biodegradation level of plastic materials. Biodegradation is determined by measuring the CO2 evolved from plastic materials when exposed to seawater sampled from coastal areas under laboratory conditions.

The conditions described in this document might not always correspond to the optimum conditions for the maximum degree of biodegradation, however this test method is designed to give an indication of the potential biodegradability of plastic materials.

NOTE

This document addresses plastic materials but can also be used for other materials.
