Biodegradable and compostable packaging materials are considered as an important puzzle piece of a sustainable packaging strategy. They meet the needs of growing consumer awareness for sustainable use and are adapted to the processes of circular economy.
Requirements and analysis of biodegradability and disintegration testing are described e.g. in EN 13432 and ISO 17088. One of the major Certification bodies, DIN CERTCO - issuing the so called seedling logo – has recently approved Eurofins Consumer Product Testing in Hamburg/Germany as recognized test laboratory to prove the demands of industrial compostability of packaging materials, intermediates and additives. All relevant testing can be executed by Eurofins to achieve the certification by DIN CERTCO and get the DIN-geprüft test mark as well as the seedling logo for biodegradable packaging materials.
