ASTM WK35342

    New Specification for Home Composting of Biodegradable Plastics

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: D20.96 | Committee D20 | Contact Staff Manager



    WK35342

    1. Scope

    Home composting cannot be directly related to existing ASTM standards for degradable plastics because the anticipated temperature profile is likely to be different.

    The standard is to be used for post-consumer disposal of plastic components without a collection infrastructure. At present, no such standard exists.


    Keywords

    composting, biodegradable, plastics

    The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
