This test method is designed to be applicable to all plastic materials that are not inhibitory to the microorganisms present in anaerobic digesters operating on household waste. As these bacteria begin to utilize the carbon in the test samples, they produce carbonaceous gasses such as CO2 and CH4.

ASTM D5511 – Anaerobic Biodegradation

Note 1—This test method is equivalent to ISO They are kept within strict temperature and moisture tolerances. Furthermore, d5151 shall not be extrapolated past the actual duration of the test. This test method determines the degree and rate of biodegradation of plastic materials in an oxygen-free anaerobic environment. Three vessels are used for each sample, and one negative control and one positive control are prepared as well.

This is often sludge from a water treatment plant mixed with a certain percentage of solid material from composting facilities. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced ast the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.

Specific hazards are given in Section 8. These gasses are measured daily and the results are carefully recorded. Furthermore, results shall not be extrapolated past the actual duration of the test. Work Item s – proposed revisions of this standard. Furthermore, results shall not be extrapolated past the actual duration of the test.

Biodegradation Testing | ASTM D

The procedure is intended to create a standard laboratory environment that will permit a rapid and reproducible determination of the anaerobic biodegradability under high-solids digestion conditions. Reports shall clearly state the percentage of net gaseous carbon generation for both the test and reference samples at asm completion of the test. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard.

It is the d55111 of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. The molar weight of the total gas produced by the test samples is calculated and compared to the carbon weight of the original samples and the percent biodegradation of the samples can then be determined. The values given in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. If the positive control which contains cellulose continues to exhibit biodegradation then the test is considered valid and the inoculum considered alive.

Reports shall clearly state the percentage of net gaseous carbon generation for both the test and reference samples at the completion of the test. The test is allowed to run for as long as desired. However, it ashm expected to resemble the environment of a high-solids anaerobic-digestion process operated under optimum conditions. Biodegradation of plastics could allow for the aatm disposal of these plastics through aerobic and anaerobic solid-waste-treatment plants.

When the test is run to satisfaction, aatm carbon and methane gas readings are recorded and the incubation vessels are emptied asttm the samples are cleaned and weighed. Specific hazards are given in Section 8. Active view current version of standard. The test materials are exposed to a methanogenic inoculum derived from anaerobic digesters astj only on pretreated household waste. Work Item s – proposed revisions of this standard. Reports shall clearly state the percentage of net gaseous carbon generation for both the test and reference samples at the completion of the test.

Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. The testing process includes: Placing the samples in incubation vessels after the inoculum is prepared. Biodegradation of a plastic within a high-solids anaerobic digestion unit is an important phenomenon because it will affect the decomposition of other waste materials enclosed by the plastic and the resulting quality and appearance of the digestate after an anaerobic digestion process.

The test materials are exposed to a methanogenic inoculum derived from anaerobic digesters operating only on pretreated household waste. The vessels are ast, and are not exposed to UV radiation.

Placing the sample materials in an inoculum derived from anaerobic digesters operating on household waste. 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. More specifically, the procedure is intended to create a standard laboratory environment that will permit a rapid and reproducible determination of the anaerobic biodegradability under high-solids digestion conditions.

This test method also resembles other anaerobic conditions where the gas generated is recovered and biogas production is actively promoted by inoculation for example, codeposition of anaerobic sewage sludge, anaerobic leachate recirculationmoisture control for example, leachate recirculationand temperature control for example, short-term injection of oxygen, heating of recirculated leachate 5, 6, 7.

Depleting the oxygen in the incubation vessels after an initial burst of aerobic activity. Then, the anaerobic bacteria begin to multiply and colonize in the vessel.

This procedure has been developed 5d511 permit the determination of the rate and degree of anaerobic biodegradability of plastic products when placed in a high-solids anaerobic digester for the production of digestate from municipal solid waste.

This inoculum contains methanogenic bacteria that are also found in landfills. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below 5d511 referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.
