ASTM D is a standard developed specifically for biobased content determination as requested by the U. Department of Agriculture for its BioPreferred Program.

ASTM D Carbon Analysis, Natural Products

The method uses radiocarbon qstm techniques asmt can measure the exact percentage of a material that came from renewable sources. Not all radiocarbon dating labs have the manpower for a quick turnaround or the technical expertise to perform ASTM D testing. Department of Agriculture and other organizations strongly encourage the use of laboratories that have such accreditation. What is the difference between biobased carbon content reported as a fraction of total organic carbon TOC vs.


For materials containing inorganic carbon such as CaCO3 the carbonate is removed from the sample prior to analysis so that the result represents the percentage of biobased carbon as a fraction of Sstm. This means that if the sample contains inorganic carbon such as carbonate, it is included in the measurement. The choice of report format should be based on factors such as the terminology desired, geographical location of the target market and the biobased certification or scheme chosen by the manufacturer for participation.

Biomass by weight, on the other hand, tells you the fraction of the product that is biomass. Beta Analytic only provides biobased carbon content results and not biomass by weight.

We do not require specific containers for samples. Solids can be placed in any container; powders should be sent in properly sealed containers especially when multiple samples are sent. Liquids should also be submitted in containers that can be sealed aastm. You can use vials with snap caps shown below or those found at this site.

Measuring Biobased Carbon Content of Fuels through ASTM D6866

It is very important to inform us before shipping hazardous samples so we can give you the correct instructions and shipping address. Our samples are from our Asia production, should we send our samples to your facility in China or your lab in the U.


Samples from Asian countries other than Japan or China should be sent to our U. Chikyu Kagaku Kenkyusho Corp. There are several third-party certified eco-labeling programs and biobased product initiatives worldwide that require or recommend biobased content testing.

There are two underlying concepts that determine whether a “plastic” d68866 is bioplastic or not — compostability and raw materials. My Account Biobased Report Validation. Labels and Certification There are several third-party certified eco-labeling programs and biobased product initiatives worldwide that require or recommend biobased content testing.
