Metsä Board, part of Metsä Group, has recently achieved home compostability certification for all its white kraftliners and folding boxboards (excluding PE-coated grades). The certification, based on compliance with standard NF T 51-800, was issued by DIN CERTCO.

All our paperboards can be recycled, which is the preferable option when the packaging or food service container has served its purpose. However, sometimes the packaging material can be stained by food, and then composting with biowaste is a good choice,” says Helena Moring-Vepsäläinen, Product Safety Manager at Metsä Board. “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 are safe to use for sensitive end use applications. They are lightweight and made using mainly fossil free energy, contributing to a lower carbon footprint throughout the whole packaging value chain.
