Test criteria

In standardized test soil under aerobic conditions, the biological activity is monitored over the entire test period by means of various parameters (temperature, soil moisture, chemical oxygen demand, soil respiration, etc.). The tests can be carried out either under defined laboratory conditions or under outdoor conditions relevant to practice. The evaluation of the tests is carried out after a specified test period using the degradation rate of products as well as the environmental compatibility or pollution caused by biodegrading products (on ecotoxicological tests or chemical analysis).
