Biodegradation Tests

Biodegradation is the decomposition of organic contaminants by microbial organisms into smaller compounds and is a beneficial process for the natural reduction of contaminants that may be released to the environment. 

275-Day Closed Bottle Biodegradation Test (ISO 11734-1995), EPA Method 1647

      This method determines degradation of base fluids by monitoring gas production due to         microbial degradation of the test fluid in marine sediment.
