This procedure has been developed to permit the determination of the rate and degree of anaerobic biodegradability of plastic products when placed in a high-solids anaerobic digester for the production of digestate from municipal solid waste. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. Reports shall clearly state the percentage of net gaseous carbon generation for both the test and reference samples at the completion of the test.

More specifically, the procedure is intended to create a standard laboratory environment that will permit a rapid and reproducible determination of the anaerobic biodegradability under high-solids digestion conditions. If the positive control which contains cellulose continues to exhibit biodegradation then the test is considered valid and the inoculum considered alive.

The vessels are d5151 and are not exposed to UV radiation. Biodegradation of a d5151 within a high-solids anaerobic digestion unit is an important phenomenon because it will affect the decomposition of other waste materials enclosed by zstm plastic and the resulting quality and appearance of the digestate after an anaerobic digestion process.

These gasses are measured daily and the results are carefully recorded. Note 1—This test method is equivalent to ISO The values given in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. Active view current version of standard. Furthermore, results shall not be extrapolated past the actual duration of the test.

This is often sludge from a water treatment plant mixed with a certain percentage of solid material from composting facilities.

Furthermore, results shall not be extrapolated past the actual duration of the test. Placing the sample materials in an inoculum derived from anaerobic digesters operating on household waste.

The procedure is intended to create a standard asmt environment that will permit a rapid and reproducible determination of the anaerobic biodegradability under high-solids digestion conditions.

Work Item s – proposed revisions of this standard. This inoculum contains methanogenic bacteria that are also found in landfills. Work Item s – proposed revisions of this standard. Furthermore, results shall not be extrapolated past the actual duration of the test.

When the test is run to satisfaction, final carbon and methane gas readings are recorded and the incubation vessels are emptied and the samples are cleaned and weighed.

It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

Specific hazards are given in Section 8.

Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. Three vessels are used for each sample, and one negative control and one positive control are prepared as well.

Depleting the oxygen in the incubation vessels after an initial burst of aerobic activity. This test method also resembles other anaerobic conditions where the gas generated is recovered and biogas production is actively promoted by inoculation for example, codeposition of anaerobic sewage sludge, anaerobic leachate recirculationmoisture control for example, leachate recirculationand temperature control for example, short-term injection of oxygen, heating of recirculated leachate 5, 6, 7.

This test v5511 determines the degree and rate of biodegradation of plastic materials in an oxygen-free anaerobic environment. However, it is expected to resemble the environment of a high-solids anaerobic-digestion process operated under optimum conditions. The test materials are exposed to a methanogenic inoculum derived from anaerobic digesters operating only on pretreated household waste. Specific hazards are given in Section 8.

They are kept within strict temperature and moisture tolerances. Reports shall clearly state the percentage of net gaseous carbon generation for both the test and reference samples at the completion of the test. It is the responsibility of the user astn this standard to d5511 appropriate safety and asrm practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

As these bacteria begin to utilize the carbon in the test samples, they produce carbonaceous gasses such as CO2 and CH4. Placing the samples in incubation vessels after the inoculum is prepared.

The testing process includes: Then, the anaerobic bacteria begin to multiply and colonize in the vessel. The test materials are exposed to a methanogenic inoculum derived from anaerobic digesters operating only on pretreated household waste. The test is allowed to run for as long as desired.

ASTM D5511 – Anaerobic Biodegradation

Biodegradation of plastics could allow for the safe disposal of these plastics through aerobic and anaerobic solid-waste-treatment plants. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. The molar weight of the total gas produced by the test samples is calculated and compared to the carbon weight of the original samples and the percent biodegradation of the samples can then be determined.

Reports shall clearly state the percentage of net gaseous carbon generation for both the test and reference samples at the completion of the test. This test method is designed to be qstm to all plastic materials that are not inhibitory to the microorganisms present r5511 anaerobic digesters operating on household waste.
