Biobased carbon content according to ASTM D6866

Compositional analysisCompositional analysis

Biobased carbon content of solid or liquid materials according to ASTM D6866 indicates how much of the samples carbon content is from renewal resources. Method includes removal of inorganic carbon if necessary prior to testing. Biobased carbon content according to this method does not indicate how much of the sample weight is biobased, it only refers to total or organic carbon. The method is based on analysing different carbon isotopes in the sample using accelerator mass spectrometry (ASM).
