Developed by Subcommittee: D13.90
WITHDRAWN, NO REPLACEMENT
This guide covers suggested criteria, procedures, and a general approach to establish the compostability of environmentally degradable nonwoven fabrics and products.
This standard is being withdrawn with no replacement because D13 no longer has the technical expertise to maintain.
Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee D13 on Textiles, this guide was withdrawn in October 2008.
1.1 This guide covers suggested criteria, procedures, and a general approach to establish the compostability of environmentally degradable nonwoven fabrics and products.
Note 1—The assessment of degradable plastics and nonwoven fabrics or products is considered similar. Consequently, this guide contains only minor changes in technical content from this guide developed by Subcommittee D20.96 on Environmentally Degradable Plastics of Committee D-20 on Plastics.
1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The inch-pound units given in parentheses are for information only.
1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
