product testing

We achieve breakthrough results through a

science-based, field-tested, and customized

four-step process:

COVID-19 has led to a surge in disposable foodware products in the workplace. Styrofoam is not the answer and there are concerns about PFAS non-stick chemicals in some compostable products. How can purchasers ensure hospitals, government agencies, schools, universities and businesses contract for healthy options?

disposable foodware testing fAQ’s:

Disposable Foodware Testing is for
  • Purchasers who want to confirm the presence or absence of particular chemicals of concern, or verify claims made by manufacturers; and
  • Manufacturers who want a trusted third party to confirm the presence or absence of chemicals for their own chemical footprint goals, for confirmation up their supply chain, and for demonstrating compliance with purchaser demands.
The presence or absence of particular chemicals in today’s workplace is a complex topic

There are roughly 5,000 compounds within the PFAS class (Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances). Because it is not possible to test for all of these individual compounds, CEH tests for total fluorine content as an indicator of likely use of PFAS in foodware.

Does your workplace use paper, paperboard and/or molded fiber products, including those labeled as compostable or biodegradable?

  • Clamshells, paperboard boxes, pizza boxes and other take-out food containers
