Certification : OK compost INDUSTRIAL
Packaging or products featuring the OK compost INDUSTRIAL label are guaranteed as biodegradable in an industrial composting plant. This applies to all components, inks and additives. The sole reference point for the certification programme is the harmonised EN 13432: 2000 standard: in any event any product featuring the OK compost INDUSTRIAL logo complies with the requirements of the EU Packaging Directive ( 94/62/EEC).
All industrially compostable raw materials, intermediate and finished products are eligible for this certification system.
This technical specification only takes into consideration industrial compostability and does not give any assessment of other end-of-life treatments (domestic compostability, biodegradation in soil or water, suitability of materials to be recycled, etc.) or other environmental aspects (renewable resources, energy and water consumption, etc.).
