EMA is recognized internationally by both the International Accreditation Forum (IAF) and the International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC), which bolsters the international recognition of AIMPLAS’ accredited tests in Spain, where we are the leading laboratory in terms of the number of tests performed on plastic materials.
In 2020, Mexico City passed a Solid Waste Law to reduce the consumption of single-use plastics. The new law prohibits the use of all plastic bags, including biodegradable ones, unless they are compostable.
Biodegradable and compostable plastics are present in an ever-increasing number of products and their market share is expected to grow in coming years. In order to verify plastic biodegradability, different regulations provide for biodegradation analysis in different media (e.g. compost, soil). Performing the appropriate tests in internationally recognized accredited laboratories is essential to generate trust throughout the plastics value chain.
