Compostability marks

Working with ITENE means enjoying the possibility to use one of the few and approved laboratories able to complete the compostability tests scheme which will allow you to apply for the three most prestigious compostability marks.

Increase your product value thanks to:

  OK Compost
Both packaging or products that are marked by OK Compost are guaranteed to be biodegradable in an industrial compostability plant. This characteristic is also aplied to components, inks and additives.

The only refference point for the certification program is the EN 13432:2000 standard: in any situation, any product that contains the OK Compost mark complies with the packaging EU directive (64/62/EEC).



Industrially Compostable

To obtain this mark for your product, material, intermediate or additive, Din Certco needs them to comply with the following rules:

-Chemical characterisation (heavy metals and other toxic substances)

-Trial for ultimate biodegradability

-Disintegration under pilot-scale composting conditions and determination of the quality of the composts (ecotoxicity test on 2 types of plants)

Earthworm toxicity tests are also required in the case of certification in accordance with AS 4736.


Seedling

Both TÜV AUSTRIA and Din Certco are certification institutes authorized by European Bioplastics in order to offer the Seedling mark to products and packaging that comply with EN 13432.

Thanks to the possibility to obtain the 3 marks, certificates have a way to offer their compostable products and to be recognized throughout the European Union.
