Samples from Asian countries other than Japan or China should be sent to our U. For those companies in countries with a cap-and-trade program in place, the ASTM D results can help them obtain more carbon credits. Braskem, a leading Brazilian petrochemical company, is one of the many bioplastics companies that use ASTM D to certify the biobased content of their products.

The radiocarbon dating method may have started as a tool in archaeology and other fossil studies, but it has now found other applications, notably the quantification of the biogenic fractions in biobased materials. A priority service is available for results required in 4 sstm days or less.
Despite vigorous attempts to clean up contaminating artificial 14 C from a laboratory, d66866 has proven to be the only successful method of avoidance. The steps involve various physical and chemical operations to eliminate extraneous materials.
Some forms of cellulose are, in fact, non-biodegradable while some that are derived from petroleum do biodegrade contrary to popular opinion. What is the difference between biobased carbon content reported as a fraction of total organic carbon TOC vs.
Biobased Carbon content of Fuels, ASTM D
The overall analytical method is also applicable to gaseous samples, including flue gases from electrical d666 boilers and waste incinerators.

Measuring Biogenic Carbon Content through ASTM D6866
Nowadays there are synthetic plastic resins that will biodegrade and compost just like paper. We do not require specific containers for samples. There is extensive instrumentation involved in both techniques as well as complicated chemistry in the aetm of samples before measurement.
However, the preparation of samples for the above test methods is described.
