BioSphere Plastic Testing Methodology
BioSphere plastic has been conducting their test methods under modified ASTM D5511-12, due to recent FTC News, we will no longer be calling the ASTM D5511-12 Modified. We conduct our tests to simulate landfills at 52C +-1C in accordance with the Federal Limit 131F or 55C as governed by the EPA. We are also doing the EPA testing 8015 soil testing to show biodegradation of the plastic material.
Below is our ASTM D5511-12 PE test results using the Biosphere additive technology.
