    1. Tier-1: Abiotic degradability (Heat aging)

    The heat aging test was carried out at 650C for 10 days and molecular weight of the material reduced to 8800 from 1,31,500.

    2. Tier-2: Biodegradability (Soil environment at 23°C)

    The degraded material after heat aging test was tested in soil as per ISO 17556. The 79% biodegradation was obtained after 607 days.

    3. Tier-3: Eco-Toxicity (Germination and Growth test)

    The germination and growth test for three different plants (Mung Bean, Radish and Oat) was performed on soil from the biodegradation test (Tire-2) after 623 days.

    The germination and biomass for all plants was over 90% compared to control soil and thus met the requirement of OECD (Office of Environmental Compliance and Documentation) guideline 208.

    Migration Test data:
