We perform biodegradability analysis for liquid samples, soluble and poorly soluble compounds.
What is biodegradability?
The ability of organic substances and materials to decompose into simpler substances due to the enzymatic activity of microorganisms.
Why is it important for products to be biodegradable?
We find ourselves in an increasingly globalized world where we generate many materials and substances that impact people’s lives and the environment on a daily basis.
Pollution has reached very high levels, therefore, in order to preserve the planet we need the materials and substances we produce to be increasingly biodegradable, we need the substances to be able to decompose organically and be able to reintegrate into the earth.

100 ml or 100 g of sample duly sealed and identified.
The duration of the analysis is 32 days from the date scheduled by the laboratory for the start of the test.
