As consumers and industries alike become increasingly concerned about the environment, the demand for compostability/biodegradability testing is also on the rise. As part of NSF's mission to protect public health and the environment, NSF provides high-quality laboratory testing to demonstrate compliance with the following biodegradability standards:
Meeting these compostability standards verifies that your plastic products will biodegrade swiftly and safely during municipal or commercial composting.
There are three main types of testing required by these standards:
