Our compostable products disintegrating into natural elements within the environment, leaving no toxicity in the soil. This typically must occur in about 90 days. Some companies advertise their products as merely biodegradable.
Certification ensures that the product can be industrially composted and that not only the plastic but also all other components of the product are compostable, e.g. colours, labels, glues and – in case of packaging products – residues of the content.
EN 13432 requires the compostable plastics to disintegrate after 12 weeks and completely biodegrade after six months. That means that 90 per cent or more of the plastic-like material will have been converted to CO2. The remaining share is converted into water and biomass – i.e. valuable compost
