This standard utilizes baseline soil carbon storage, annual carbon sequestration levels, and other emerging diagnostics (such as nitrous oxide emissions) along with classical life cycle analysis to provide a consensus-based method for determining and validating a carbon intensity (CI) score across a broad diversity of bio-based product categories.
carbon negative; carbon neutral: emissions: carbon intensity: regenerative agriculture: soil carbon sequestration: microbes: geological soil
The standard will provide the methodology to enable & support a consumer facing carbon intensity score which will provide choices for consumers when making purchasing decisions based on sustainable bio-based products.
The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
