Project Number 1

Test Objective:

We have to certify some of our products to the Ecologo and we have to do a performance test. Ecologo gave me the reference of your laboratory for the ASTM E679 test. Products shall demonstrate their ability to control odors in accordance with one of the following test procedures: Odor control products must perform as well as at least two conventional, functionally equivalent products that are available in North America when tested against Standard Guide for Assessing the Efficacy of Air Care Products in Reducing Sensorily Perceived Indoor Air Malodor Intensity, ASTM E1593, or Standard Practice for Determination of Odor and Taste Thresholds By a Forced-Choice Ascending Concentration Series Method of Limits, ASTM E679. For biologically based odor control products, a real-life source of malodor must be used instead of synthetic malodors as samples and testing should follow any application and time requirements stated on the product label to allow time for the microbial components to react.
