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. Specific hazards are given in Section 8. This procedure has been developed to 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 asm municipal solid waste.

However, it is expected to resemble the environment of a high-solids anaerobic-digestion process operated under optimum conditions. This inoculum contains methanogenic bacteria that are also found in landfills. This test method is designed to sstm applicable to all plastic materials that are not inhibitory to the microorganisms present in anaerobic digesters operating on household waste.

Depleting the oxygen in the incubation vessels after an initial burst of aerobic activity. The test materials are exposed atm a methanogenic inoculum derived from anaerobic digesters operating only on pretreated household waste. 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 sstm conditions. Placing the samples in incubation vessels after the inoculum is prepared.

Historical Version s – view previous versions of 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. 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.

Biodegradation of plastics could allow for the safe disposal of these plastics through wstm and anaerobic solid-waste-treatment plants. 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 testing process d5511 If the positive control which contains cellulose continues to exhibit biodegradation then the test is considered valid and the inoculum considered alive.

ASTM D5511 – Anaerobic Biodegradation

The test materials are exposed to a methanogenic inoculum derived from anaerobic digesters operating only satm pretreated household waste. Reports shall clearly state the percentage of net gaseous carbon generation for both the test and reference samples at the completion of the test. These gasses are measured daily and the results are carefully recorded. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to asgm.

Three vessels are used for each sample, and one negative control and one positive control atm prepared as well. As these bacteria begin to utilize the carbon in the test samples, they produce carbonaceous gasses such as CO2 and CH4. Then, the anaerobic bacteria begin to multiply and colonize in the vessel. Work Item s – proposed revisions of this standard. 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.

Specific hazards are given in Section 8. Furthermore, results shall not be extrapolated past the actual duration of astn test. Active view current version of standard. 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.

Furthermore, results shall not be extrapolated d55511 the actual duration of the test. Reports shall clearly state the percentage of net gaseous carbon generation for both the astj and reference samples at the completion of the test.

Note 1—This test method is equivalent to ISO Placing the sample materials in an inoculum derived from anaerobic digesters operating on household waste. Work Item s – proposed revisions of this standard. The values given in Asmt units are to be regarded as the standard. They are kept within strict temperature and moisture tolerances. Furthermore, results shall not be extrapolated past the actual duration of the test. The vessels are airtight and are not exposed to UV radiation.

Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. 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 within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. The test is allowed to run for as long as desired. This test method determines the degree and rate of biodegradation of plastic materials in an oxygen-free anaerobic environment.

When the astmm is run to satisfaction, final carbon and methane gas readings are recorded and the incubation vessels are emptied and the samples are cleaned and weighed.
