The tests can be carried out either under defined laboratory conditions or under practical outdoor conditions (exposed to the climate). Under laboratory conditions, incubation takes place in standardized test containers under constant climatic conditions.
We use standardized test soil under aerobic conditions, whereby the biological activity is monitored using a reference sample.
Sampling and sample cleaning are carried out after three defined excavation dates (these can be set based on the product).
After a specified test period, the test samples are evaluated for degradation rate based on qualitative determination of the the mass loss.
Furthermore, we check the environmental compatibility or environmental pollution caused by the product's degradation with ecotoxicological tests and optional chemical analyses.
