Metsä Board Achieves Home Compostability Certification for Paperboards

Metsä Board has announced that it has achieved home compostability certification for all its white kraftliners and folding boxboards (excluding PE-coated grades).

The certification was issued by DIN CERTCO based on the compliance with standard NF T 51-800.

"All our paperboards can be recycled, which is the preferable option when the packaging or food service container has served its purpose," said Helena Moring-Vepsäläinen, product safety manager at Metsä Board. "However, sometimes the packaging material can be stained by food, and then composting with bio-waste is a good choice.

"Our paperboards have had industrial compostability certification for several years now, and home compostability is one step further which is certainly welcomed by consumers."

All Metsä Board paperboards are made of fresh wood fibers and described as safe to use for 'sensitive end use applications'.
