New Test Method for Determining Carbon Intensity via Regenerative Agriculture Process

1. Scope

The development of standardized nomenclature and definitions of terms, recommended practices, guides, test methods, specifications, and performance standards for industrial biotechnology and synthetic biology from raw materials to end products. The committee will encourage research in this field and sponsor symposia, workshops, and publications to facilitate the development of such standards.

This committee shall support and serve as a resource for other ASTM committees in their activities that include industrial biotechnology and synthetic biology issues. This support may include dissemination of specific requests for standards throughout ASTM's existing committee base, as well as the maintenance of appropriate liaison relationships (internal and external) related to this subject area. The committee will not duplicate the efforts of existing ASTM technical committees. The work of this committee will be coordinated with other ASTM committees and other organizations having mutual interest.


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.
