Directive no. 94/62/EC was focused on the repercussions that packaging waste has on the environment and implemented some measures for their prevention: this was the first step to change the approach towards these topics and that nowadays leads to look for new solutions for recyclable and compostable bags and packaging.

Mérieux NutriSciences - Test per la certificazione della Compostabilità - OK Compost

Compostable materials can be transformed in compost, productive soil used as fertilizer: if correctly treated, they are not a waste but a resource perfectly integrated in the cycle of nature. Compostable products at the end of their life have a reduced environmental impact and are a modern and sustainable choice.

Mérieux NutriSciences helps Companies in the analytical process to obtain the certifications.

Mérieux NutriSciences is qualified by DIN-CERTCO (DIN Geprüft) and TÜV Austria (OK compost mark), the certification bodies authorized by European Bioplastics to use the “Seedling” logo to make products like plates, cutlery, bags recognizable on the market as compostable.


Tests are carried out in accordance with UNI EN 13432 standard.
