ABSTRACT
Biodegradabilities of polymers and their composites in a controlled compost were described. Polycaprolactone (PCL) and poly(lactic acid) (PLA) were employed as biodegradable polymers. Biodegradabilities of PCL and PLA samples in a controlled compost were measured using a Microbial Oxidative Degradation Analyzer (MODA) according to ISO 14855-2. Sample preparation method for biodegradation test according to ISO/DIS 10210 was also described. Effects of sizes and shapes of samples on biodegradability were studied. Reproducibility of biodegradation test of ISO 14855-2 by MODA was confirmed. Validity of sample preparation method for polymer pellets, polymer film, and polymer products of ISO/DIS 10210 for ISO 14855-2 was confirmed.

Mentions: The Japan Bioplastics Association (JBPA) is a organization voluntarily founded by the major Japanese plastics producing companies and others focused on plastics, which was established with the aim of promoting the popularization of biodegradable plastics and biomass-based plastics, which play an important role in solving the recycling-technical problems [1]. JBPA has established two identification systems related to biodegradable plastics products and biomass-based plastics products. That is, the GreenPla Identification System and the BiomassPla Identification System. There are logo marks for these systems as shown in Figures 1 and 2.
