We are a small, privately owned company dedicated to only producing certified compostable bags and films. Because we use starches from renewable crops, our bags can be readily composted along with organic waste in municipal composting facilities.

This specification covers plastics and products made from plastics that are designed to be composted in municipal and industrial aerobic composting facilities. Maximum throughput is a high priority to composters and the intermediate stages of plastic disintegration and biodegradation not be visible to the end user for aesthetic reasons.

Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. According to ASTM D, plastics and the products made from them are compostable if they biodegrade at a rate comparable to known compostable materials.

This specification is intended to establish the requirements for labeling of materials and products, including packaging made from plastics, as “compostable in municipal and industrial composting facilities. Work Item s – proposed revisions of this standard.
