Standard Test Guide Revised and Renewed at ASTM

Standard Test Guide for Oxo-Biodegradable Plastics, ASTM D6954-18 is Revised and Renewed at ASTM

 ASTM D6954-18 provides a rigorous frame work in which to evaluate and measure Oxo-Biodegradable materials through degradation, biodegradation and ecotoxicity.

The standard test guide for oxo-biodegradable plastics, ASTM D6954-18 “Exposing and Testing Plastics that Degrade in the Environment by a Combination of Oxidation and Biodegradation”, has been successfully revised and renewed for a further 5 years till 1st March 2023. This revision and renewal process was performed under the technical leadership of Dr Gary Ogden FIMMM, CSci, Chairman, OBPF, in collaboration with key technical members of OBPF.

The OBPF continues to maintain the functionality of this standard test guide to ensure the suitability of oxo-biodegradable technology to global plastic applications.
