Consumer Material Biodegradation Testing Services
RespirTek has offered consumer material biodegradation testing (CMBT) for eleven years, utilizing methods from OECD, ASTM, EPA, and ISO to certify numerous products as biodegradable for marketing claims. The Company has expanded these capabilities to include all relevant methodologies from the above mentioned standards organizations. RespirTek provides consultation to evaluate the optimal testing approach for a given material based on the regulations guiding the testing, whether from Green Seal, EcoLogo, REACH or the Federal Trade Commission’s Green Guide. Landfill, compost, and wastewater testing matrices are most common, and RespirTek’s years of experience in this field provide clients with expertise in developing a testing strategy most suited to the goals of their specific project. Screen testing, inoculum toxicity screening, and a host of other preliminary tests can guide product development prior to full testing for certification or marketing purposes.
The ISO 17025 certification demonstrates that RespirTek’s service offerings are aligned with the International Standards Organization and provide U.S. and international clients’ confidence in the performance of formal tests that require regulatory approval for various certifications. ISO certification also takes RespirTek one-step further in the quest to provide the absolute highest quality data and reporting services in a wide range of testing options. As regulatory-driven environmental testing extends beyond typical chemical analyses, RespirTek strives to stay one step ahead of the anticipated overhaul of how environmental testing is certified and used to make decisions about real-world activities involving waste disposal, site remediation, or wastewater treatment. This ISO 17025 certification complements RespirTek’s prior certifications from ELAP, GLP, and USDA to provide unprecedented quality control for all operations from sample receipt to project termination and reporting.
