Ingeo Biopolymer in landfills has no statistically significant quantity of methane released

September 18, 2012 |

In Minnesota, NatureWorks reports that a peer-reviewed article appearing in the journal of Polymer Degradation and Stability concludes that Ingeo biopolymer is essentially stable in landfills with no statistically significant quantity of methane released. This conclusion was reached after a series of tests to ASTM D5526 and D5511 standards that simulated a century’s worth of landfill conditions.

Two series of tests spanning a broad spectrum of conditions. The first series did not show any statistically significant generation of biogas, so the team decided to push the stress tests to a higher and more aggressive level. In this second test, biogas released was not statistically significant according to the peer reviewed research paper.
