What is ASTM D6400?

ASTM is the American Society for Testing and Materials. ASTM D6400 refers to the Standard Specification for Labeling of Plastics Designed to be Aerobically Composted in Municipal or Industrial Facilities.

This particular specification refers to products that can be composted in municipal or industrial facilities. This specification determines whether the products can be broken down or composted and biodegraded. The rate of composting is another factor in this specification. It is also necessary to find out if these products can compost at a rate that is similar or comparable to other compostable products and materials.

The specification is specifically made to assess plastics and plastic products that are made to be compostable.

Many of our products such as our tableware, takeout containers, and cups are ASTM compliant for maximum convenience.
