Total fluorine (F) analysis is required for approval by Compost Manufacturing Alliance and to determine if foodservice packaging meets any local requirements for F content.

Samples for Testing
One sample should be a complete foodservice package prepared for testing as noted below. The packaging must be ground to less than 20 mesh size to homogenize the sample. However, additional samples may be needed.

Sample Grinding
If needed, the following two labs will grind samples, coordinate the total F testing at an approved lab and provide a testing summary report.

Approved Testing Labs
To ensure proper testing for total F content, the testing must be performed at one of the three labs listed below; please note any special testing requirements listed for a lab. These labs will also grind samples for an additional cost.
