TUV Testing Reveals Compostability for both Home and Industry
“We are committed to developing end-of-life solutions for our products to keep our landscapes and oceans cleaner, now and for generations to come,” stated Sharon Beeman, VP of Sales, S-OneLP. “TUV certification allows us to better align with our customers’ initiatives for sustainable flexible packaging.”
The ReEarth line of prelaminated flexible packaging films are designed using bio-based and compostable components. S-OneLP uses a collaborative approach to designing these films in conjunction with global innovative materials manufacturers of bio-based and compostable resins, films, adhesives, and coatings.
TUV OK compost HOME certification guarantees complete compostability even in a garden compost pile, which uses a lower temperature and slower-paced process than industrial composting. Products featuring the OK compost INDUSTRIAL label are guaranteed as compostable in an industrial composting facility. This applies to all components submitted in the pouch form including Michelman DigiPrime®, HP Indigo inks and a CatPak™ Matte eBeam overprint varnish.
