Biodegradability and Compostability Certifications

All grades are certified according to the main European and international standards by Certification Bodies. These certifications guarantee biodegradation in various disposal environments: industrial composting, home composting, and soil biodegradation.

  • Biodegradability: The material's ability to be converted into carbon dioxide (CO2) by microorganisms, similar to the natural degradation of organic waste.

  • Disintegration: The fragmentation and loss of visibility in the final compost.

  • No Adverse Effects on the Composting Process: Ensuring that the material does not negatively impact the composting process.

  • Heavy Metals Nearly Absent and No Adverse Effects on Compost Quality: Verification that heavy metals are almost absent, and there are no adverse effects on the quality of the resulting compost.
